You're welcome, islandjoan! We need to spread the word so people can be better prepared. I didn't see anybody strapping their ac units before the storm, and there were so many that were scatter after the storm.

Ha! First thing I did when I bought the condo was bolt down the mini-split outdoor units. The feet have anchor holes. After Maria when the HOA did the inspections they commented mine were the only ones bolted down. Some of them took off through the gallery railings and into the air.

Actually that was the second thing. First thing was to install the whole house surge protector.

Good for you, Scubadoo! The hardware stores in the territory should offer workshops on disaster preparation at the start of every hurricane season. It can't be emphasized enough.
