Not sure how much the building codes gave changed since Andrew but most of the country building inspectors lost their jobs after Andrew after it came out they were taking payoffs from the builders. Roofs that were approved didn't have the wind straps to tie it to the foundation, tarpaper on the roof did not have even one half the amount of fasteners required by code.
