The problem exists because over the years the shoreline has changed. What hasn't changed is the need for people to keep building closer and closer to the water and not back toward the road. Everyone wants the best view. The best views wins with the damage just ask Scott Getzer and what happened when he built a pier in front of his house.That’s terrible for those affected. We’ve had super moons before, how is this one different I wonder. Is home owners insurance even a thing in PP?
Being on the San Andreas Fault line, historically, has the surrounding RP/Cholla Bay area ever experienced a big one? Definitely had at least 2 or 3 5.0's in the last 10 years if I remember correctly. The one a few weeks ago was near 5.0 I believe. North of Santa Clara?In Mexico there is coverage for Hydro events, but the problem is many insurance companies won't cover beach front. Those policies that do have hydro coverage will cover catastrophic damage to your property only. So you need to add items like earthquake and HYDRO METEOROLOGICAL coverage as add on's, the policy will cost more. I added Earthquake coverage to mine and drove the cost up 50%. I'm use Pro Alliance for my insurance needs in Penasco. Paty is the main contact there.
Beautiful picture!!!!! You're making me miss CB more than ever right now.
I would tend to agree with that. Humans have added a variable into the mix. Generally variables have an effect on the outcome of the experiment, IE new moon waves. Sea rise is a fact. Why the sea is rising is the discussion so that has to be a factor too. What I don't understand, in a practical sense, what is another 20 feet closer doing for your property? I'd argue the view is identical.My feeling is that for each new sea wall that is built it will affect some change in the way the waves break in a super moon high wind event. Couple that with what some say is global warming or other man made changes too the earth I would say that all of it together is the reason we are seeing so much damage to these homes. Before sea walls, the house was built away from the high tide line and between the house and the high tide were dunes....that is not the case anymore. I would not live beach front as anything your neighbor does to protect his property can have an effect on you.
I don't know if Mexico has their own system, the antenna on the building is pointing towards Baja if that helps.Beautiful picture!!!!! You're making me miss CB more than ever right now.
Nope! I was not aware of that.
Do you know what the largest recorded earthquake in the area was? Is it USGS data or does Mexico have their own agency?

On another note
Joe, I spoke with my local friend and he feels it will be June before Penasco gets opened back up and that's only if CV cases
plummet in surrounding areas. I was sure hoping for a 2-3 week stay in Cholla before then.
