    I worked for most of my life as an Insurance adjuster and have seeen many huricane damaged properties: mostly Square Box wooden framed structures. I've watched over the years as people put back the same kind of constructed buildings in these storm areas.

    This type of construction is ridiculous in those areas.

    Square boxes are the most vulnerable of structures to damage by high winds and water.

    I have yet to see a designer who has the hutzbah to build a wind and water resistant structure: which would be either
    a geodesic dome or cirular metalic, areodynamic surface.

    It actually is possible to build a building that would not be effected by wind or water by using physics. It is silly to keep building square frame structures that will be just ass easily destroyed as the initial home was.
