terrac, generally modern construction quality is shoddy. People in the us are only concerned with square footage(lots of it). We are so used to buying cheap consumer crap for everything that some of us accept that in our houses. Also we ignore history and build in inappropriate places.

On that note: It must be possible to build houses that can withstand strong winds a flooding. Just build low concrete bunkers, sealing them off the water should be easy. Or is it cheaper in the long run to just built cheap houses, let them be destroyed and build them again? I've heard some things about american houses...
