Abstract: Various views of hurricane winds and damage are shown and the inability of buildings to withstand high winds is discussed. The best way to be safe if a hurricane strikes is to leave the area but this can be difficult as the National Weather Service can provide only a twelve hour warning. An evaluation of houses in the Florida Keys showed that few could withstand a major hurricane. University of Florida professor Chris Jones suggests this result is true in any Florida community.
