Hurricane Matthew recently visited the east coast. Fortunately, Landfall’s infrastructure is well suited to minimize damage, so the community had no significant storm related problems. In fact, thanks to underground utilities, power was not even lost. The Landfall Council of Associations has a well thought out storm preparation and clean-up plan. Lakes and ponds have their levels lowered before the rains hit, to contain heavy rainfall and reduce any possibility of flooding. Disposal areas within the community are available for storm debris removal and there is an active system of removal from streets and yards to this site.
Steve Hughes, the chief operating officer for the Council, stated that only about 150 trees were downed or damaged and that all streets were open within hours following the passing of the storm. Said Hughes, “I want to thank the entire Landfall Community for their outstanding cooperation and help during the post storm clean-up!”
