    re stronger building codes – I used to think this was the way to go, but (1) most of us living here in florida can’t afford those houses (the ones that are being built in my (formerly working-class) neighborhood are selling for 8-10x my yearly income), and (2) what are you planning to do with all the rubble that will be left over after you tear down all the deficient houses (and there are huge numbers of them) and build new, hurricane-proof ones?
