Last year at the end of August, the Maharishi Vastu Architecture page on Facebook® featured a Maharishi Vastu home situated along the coast of Connecticut, USA, that had come through Hurricane Irene without damage of any kind.
Just a few weeks ago, as everyone knows, an even more powerful storm came ashore on the northeast coast of the United States and again battered this same area and then moved far inland, bringing massive destruction and power disruption. Again the owners of the home in Connecticut elected to stay in their home, even though the neighborhood was told evacuation was the best plan.
Here is what the owners related about their experience:
As we entered into what was being called a storm of epic proportion and duration, Hurricane Sandy, we took the usual hurricane precautions: got food, water, generator in place, our custom-made double front doors and our first floor bay windows boarded up.
We lost power at about 4pm and from that moment forward and for many hours we got pounded by sustained winds of 50-80 mph. It never seemed to let up. The sheer force of its relentless battering on the house was eerily similar to the storm last summer. Once again we were in the position of putting our faith in the Vastu Shield effect, especially because our home is only 250 feet from Long Island Sound. This area was predicted to be in the RED zone for highest flooding and most danger. Many suggested we evacuate and many of our neighbors did evacuate but because it was not mandatory, we chose to stay within our Vastu. Even though the experience was frightening, we kept always referring back to our knowledge of Maharishi Vastu Architecture. Knowing that nature would not harm our Maharishi Vastu home was a great comfort.
Other homeowners had trees fall on their property and one huge tree would have fallen on our garage had it not been stopped by a neighbor's garage. A house across the street had a tree fall directly onto the house. Trees and wires are down and the water came up our street but not up to our home.

Global Good News will continue to report on the experiences of the Maharishi Vastu homeowners in Connecticut and those of other Vastu owners in the Northeast region of the US during Hurricane Sandy.
