Hurricane Accordion Storm Shutters
Accordion shutters are a permanently installed storm shutter system designed for both protection from the elements (such as hurricanes) and home / office security. They fold back to stack neatly next to the opening similar to a louvered door and are composed of one or two pieces. Accordion storm shutters are great for windows and doors, balconies, large patio openings, and commercial high-rise buildings.
Roll shutters are installed above an opening and are raised and lowered using an electronic motor. The system can also be activated manually by crank. When built into a new home, roll down shutters are virtually invisible. While in the closed position, they not only provide storm protection, but they also protect from forced entry and theft. When not in use, they store in an enclosed box located at the top of the opening.
Bahama Aluminum Shutters
Bahama hurricane shutters hinge at the top and have adjustable arms allowing the shutters to be positioned at various angles. If privacy and/or relief from the Florida sun is desired, Bahama shutters can be positioned within the window opening. During hurricanes and storms, simply lower the shutter into the vertical position and secure with locking pins. Bahama shutters are the premiere choice for windows on multi-story buildings because they can easily be locked from inside.
Colonial Aluminum Shutters
Colonial Shutters are similar to Bahama Shutters except they hinge on the sides as opposed to hinging at the top. To secure Colonial shutters for hurricanes, simply close each half of the shutter and secure with a horizontal storm bar. The storm bar fits into brackets that are permanently attached to the non-decorative side of the shutter and are secured with locking pins.
Steel, aluminum or polycarbonate storm panels attach to the walls around windows and doors on bolts or tracks. Storm panels are corrugated, and each piece overlaps the next for maximum strength. There are several styles of storm panels to choose from.

Lazy Lake FL
Lazy Lake is a village contained entirely within the borders of the city of Wilton Manors, in Broward County, Florida. The population was 24 at the 2010 census. The village of Lazy Lake is roughly 620,000 sq ft (58,000 m2).

Lazy Lake – A tiny hamlet in the midst of a bustling metropolis, its very existence defies the imagination. Lazy Lake has no traffic light, no gas station, no website, no town hall, and only one road to call its own. The 35 residents who live in Broward County’s smallest town like it that way. “The more people don’t know about us, the better,” longtime resident and onetime mayor Joe Fodera said of the village, founded in 1953. The village last had an election in 2006, when newcomer Lyn McFarland broke with tradition and challenged Joe McCallion for mayor, breaking a political dry spell that lasted 22 years. “Once every 20 years, we’ll have an election,” Fodera quipped. Elections cost money, Fodera said. Better to just take turns being mayor, residents say. “Everybody gets a turn here and there, depending on how long they’ve lived here,” said McCallion. In 2006, McFarland beat McCallion 12 to 3 in an election that boasted a 59% turnout. The people who live in the 15 homes built around the village’s 3.5-acre namesake lake have no interest in joining Wilton Manors, their much-larger neighboring municipality. “Everyone is content just the way it is,” said Fodera, who relinquished the mayor’s title in 2010 for another: village clerk, the town’s only paid employee. As clerk, he makes $4,800 a year and helps oversee Lazy Lake’s $35,000 annual budget. “I want to maintain the village’s countrylike charm and keep it the way it is,” said Pringle, who moved to Lazy Lake in February 2010 after relocating to Fort Lauderdale from New York five years earlier. Lazy Lake FL residents pay low taxes – $495 per $100,000 of assessed value compared with $699 in Wilton Manors – and want to make sure it stays that way, Pringle said. Home values here range from $278,000 to $595,000, but average about $500,000, even with the depressed real estate market. Lazy Lake is bordered by Andrews Avenue on the west and Northeast First Avenue on the east, Northeast 21st Court on the south and Northeast 24th Street on the north. Lazy Lake made national news in 1995 when residents put their tiny town up for sale, listing it for $15 million. “It was a great deal,” Fodera said. “Where can you buy a town for $15 million in Florida?” No one, however, took the deal.
Hurricane Wilma was the most intense hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic basin. Wilma was the fourth Category 5 hurricane and second-most destructive hurricane of the record-breaking 2005 season. Formed in the Caribbean Sea near Jamaica on October 15. Wilma continued intensifying, and eventually became a hurricane on October 18. Shortly thereafter, extreme intensification occurred, and in only 24 hours, Wilma became a Category 5 hurricane with winds of 185 mph (295 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made landfall in Cape Romano, Florida with winds of 120 mph (190 km/h). Hurricane Wilma made several landfalls, with the most destructive effects felt in the Yucatán Peninsula of Mexico, Cuba, and the US state of Florida. At least 62 deaths were reported, and damage is estimated at $29.1 billion (2005 USD), $20.6 billion (2005 USD) of which occurred in the United States. As a result, Hurricane Wilma is ranked among the top five most costly hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic and the fifth costliest storm in United States history.
