During a hurricane mobile home owners will find out just how mobile their homes really are. No mobile home or manufactured home – no matter how new it is – can provide safe shelter from hurricanes or from any threat on any day ever.
Straps or other tie-downs will not protect a mobile home from the high winds associated with a hurricane. A mobile home is basically one notch above living in an old refrigerator box.
Mobile home residents must evacuate when told to do so by local authorities, they must also suffer the ridicule and laughter as the whole town watches them evacuate long before the storm is anywhere near the coast. Too bad you didn’t make better life choices.
