Hurricanes can strike anywhere. Even in Hypoluxo.
Hypoluxo is a small town located on Florida’s Gold Coast. Halfway between West Palm Beach and Boca Raton, Hypoluxo features beachfront property, hidden coves, and various boating inlets for its residents. In the 1990 census, Hypoluxo was recorded as having 830 residents, in 1997 – 1,371 residents, and in 2000 – 2,015 residents. The most current census, in 2009, found that the population grew to 2,427 residents.
The origin of the name “Hypoluxo” is debated. The word is a combination of Greek, Latin, and Seminole languages, with the Greek root “hypo” meaning under, or below average, while the Latin “lux” means light. The historical interpretation by Seminole Indians roughly translated the word “Hypoluxo” to water all around, no get out.
Nestled between the Atlantic Ocean, and Lake Osborne, the small town experiences about two hurricanes on an annual basis that make landfall on its shores. Hypoluxo homeowners are also at risk of ocean hurricanes passing north along the Florida coast, whipping beater bands and inclement weather on the shore.
Hypoluxo Impact Windows Provide Reliable Protection
Benjamin Franklin once said that “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This quote is apt when talking about hurricane protection for your Florida home. Preventing a hurricane from entering your home is one of the surest ways of protecting it.
In the event of a hurricane, differences in pressure in combination with gale force winds and constant rain can weaken the openings in your home. A hurricane is most likely to enter your home through an open window or door. Should this happen, more wind will enter, ripping your place apart – causing destruction as the air enters your home, looking for a place to escape. Roofs have been known to be lifted off homes when a window shatters and air is let in. Once the roof is lifted, the structure of your home is severely impacted, and your Hypoluxo home can even collapse.
