Different parts of the FL are affected more with Hurricanes than other parts. The areas destroyed last year by the hurricane were in a "no hurricane zone" sort of thing. Unfortunantely, 1 out of 100 chance, they got hit. After '92, homes being built in FL go through a very tough building code inspections and with shutters, I feel extremely safe. We also have 2 gas powered backup generators connected to our power, the minute our power goes out, the backup generators kick on. They can power this house (5 bedroom/3.5 bathroom) for a whole week before running out of gas.bozley05 said:I don't know how people in natural disaster areas can live there. Earthquakes, hurricanes, cyclones etc.. Scary! I guess they build houses to cope with it though.
The only real risk I have here in New York City is...terrorism. Not related to the weather at all.notnamed said:I much prefer living here in Indiana where there's no chance of hurricanes. Hurricanes are so much larger than tornados, and they stay powerful for longer.
And bozely, why a hurricane to a good, ol' fashioned snow storm? Just need to have a nice big 4WD truck and some tire chains. Driving in the snow is fun, as long as you don't run the risk of crashing.
