Well, ground level I agree. You have to be elevated. People in the Keys have known this shit for ages. How everybody else got so stupid is the question. By your logic there should be no standards at all.

Having seen what Andrew did, once you lose your roof or garage door, you pretty much lose everything. CBS means a LOT when it comes to Cat 1 through 3, after that if your garage door isn't specifically protected and your roof isn't most current code then you are probably going to lose.

True enough, but as I remember it Andrew was a freak. Storm surge generally does the most damage from hurricanes. Andrew was slow moving an did most of its damage from wind, it is why the insurance companies all took a huge bath. They cover wind, but not storm surge (for just that reason).

In case you haven't noticed, we are not living in the pioneer days where if you made a stupid decision you alone bore the risk. So people who want to live in shit homes in dangerous areas are subsidized by the rest of us. Screw that.
