CAMERON, La. – Newly built-to-code houses that have already survived one hurricane will be featured in this year’s Cameron Parish Tour of Hurricane-resistant Homes.
The tour will be held from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, May 17.
Houses on the tour were built to replace houses destroyed when Hurricane Rita ravaged southwest Louisiana in 2005. Hurricane Ike slammed in to the Gulf in 2007, resulting in a surge as high, or higher, than the surge brought on by Hurricane Rita.The newly built houses survived Ike, and the owners are eager to show others how to build along the Gulf Coast.
