New data shows even more evidence Florida's wind codes might not be up to code in hurricanes

When Hurricane Michael struck Florida’s panhandle in 2018, it was in many ways, unlike any storm to hit Florida in the last 25 years. David Roueche, an engineer who toured Hurricane’s Michael’s damage says, “what was unique about Hurricane Michael, that level of devastation particularly in Mexico Beach was not something that we’ve seen really since Hurricane Andrew.” Roueche is one of the engineers who worked on a report surveying the damage caused by Hurricane Michael when it came ashore.
