I hate to ask a stupid question. I have only been designing structures since 1976 so senility may have crept in to cleanse my brain from most information and memories. Nevertheless, I have never known of a limitation on wind drift. Once, I think in the Blue Book commentary, there was a mention of it but nothing official. Please fill me in. Thanks,

I don't think there is one. Story drift is given in the seismic provisions of IBC/ASCE7.
