Storm shutters going up as Isaac preps continue
LAKE WORTH -- Some South
Florida homeowners are installing hurricane shutters to protect
their homes.

Shari Klein has been in her Lake Worth home for two
years and didn't have any protection before this.

After sweating through last
hurricane season, Klein decided to have accordion shutters installed.

She says, “it was kind of scary last
summer. Pretty happy right now.”  

For a two story house with 19
windows, it cost Klein about seven thousand dollars to put up the shutters.
