Alternate Title: Be Prepared: A Solution for Living Near the River

"When Jack and Fancy Hanks decided to build a house just 200 feet from the Tangipahoa River, they saw an opportunity to create a home that could stand up to nearly anything Mother Nature could throw at it. When Hurricane Isaac made landfall in August 2012 and severely damaged thousands of homes in Louisiana, the couple's planning paid off. The slow-moving storm swamped other buildings in their area, but the Hanks' home stayed snug and dry, just as they had planned."
