Well, the heavy damage was caused when it was a CAT 4/3.

I think one thing you might tend to overlook too is the building codes of Miami Dade. That's become a standard for construction and for insurers. In Broward county a homeowner of an older home can save huge money on insurance by upgrading to those standards. I have a friend in Pompano who got a two year payback on all new windows and doors.

It's my understanding, although I wasn't here, that none of the Lennar built homes of Country Walk which were destroyed by Andrew would pass code today.
