Yes, Dade County has the highest building standards in the country and that saves many homes and lives but even older homes (built in the 1950s ) were built to high standards but mandated by the county because the builders knew the risks. Homes built in costal areas were like fishing shacks in many areas of northwestern Florida through Texas. Those would suffer quite a bit of damage. A friend has such a shack in La. along the water for fishing and every blow it gets knocked down and he and friends rebuild it in a couple of weekends. He catches plenty of fish. LOL
