Re: the story of the hurricane- questions

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
 
why don't the cities and counties outlaw new mobile homes- which seem to suffer a large % of the total damage from these wind storms, especially in lives lost?
 
have there been retrofit efforts to tie down and strengthen mobile homes and if so how effective have they been?
 
For those who do not know, we have done quite a bit of retrofit work to strengthen buildings both residential and commercial to resist earthquakes better. Most of the retrofit work which has been done has been for URM and soft story buildings.
