Homes in Babcock Ranch are built on higher ground, protected by retention ponds, and powered by 650,000 solar panels.
Babcock Ranch, a community of 4,600 residents, reported no power outages, no flooding, and no major structural damage. Except for a fallen traffic light, a few dislodged street signs, and some toppled palm trees, the town is still fully functional.
How is this possible?
