    very sad, but why do thay build wooded homes! in a place that get's big wind storms each year !! the floor is left as a foot print so why is there not even a basement in every home? cost maybe !but what price life

    Paul its not that simple, some storms come with torrential rain, which would fill you cellar, most houses have a safe room, concrete walls and stronger ceiling, but not much stands upto 200mph wind for long, even your house would most probably collapse. Having been in hurricanes katrina and Ivan the power is unbelievable .

    I have tried not to watch footage as it sounds horrible from what I have heard. I am thinking about all the poor souls and all their families. Really bad news and my sympathies go out to them.
    Soon to be the latest member of the 20cal club.

    It all works out in the end and if it hasn't worked out well it isn't the end!
