I am familiar with area. Started in electrical 40 years ago wiring house in Punta Gorda Isles. 2 lane up 41 back then. Yes Charley did a number on that area. We thought he was a hurricane until Irma went over our house last year so now we know. I remember working on a problem with a CB tower being fed from a house with no grounding and boy did that cause some crazy stuff to happen.

US 41. The 4 lane traffic jamb in motion !
I flew into Charlotte Co. Airport in 1994. The air port is east of 41, Windmill Village is west. Had to cross 41. It took a long time. This was 5 PM. Maybe just a bad time, but I would not swear to that. The other thing I recall, if you were driving down 41 and a car came up on a side road or street, you better make a hole. He/she was going to pull out. I was a lot happier when I was in the air looking down on that mess. 8)
Dad sold out and moved back to Indiana the year before the Hurricane hit. He said the area was over due for a big one. One of his better moves. Was not anything left in the aftermath.
Having your radio tower well grounded is a great idea. Lightning ! The antenna lead goes inside the house. No guarantee a good tower ground will keep lightning out, but it sure don't hurt !
I know. I am rambling. Got off the topic !
