    I know a man who built his house on sand. The storm came and took his house away. But I set my house on a solid foundation. Christ is my rock the rock of my salvation!

    People simply don't make houses like they used to anymore. And these idiots who choose to live in areas where hurricanes and storms are routine never let the thought cross their minds that maybe they should reinforce their homes. But i guess they prefer their homes being destroyed all the time and most of the possessions with it and having to replace all of it. Hell if it's me I'm moving where there's no storms at all.

    all houses should be made of concrete, that's it, especially in high risk areas like florida. So that way you can be sure that your house is gonna be fine after a hurricane.

    I hope all those who lost their homes write a letter to NASA and the president thanking them for creating Hurricane Michael to destroy their homes and stop thinking this shit is natural disaster. Like how many times do they have to tell you they creating this shit before we believe them and do something about it?

    Blows my mind people live in hurricane and tornado areas and DO NOT build like this. So crazy this is a one off actually being prepared for where you live and relatively common events. Its like the fools in 3rd world countries living on a hillside and then when a heavy rain causes a land slide.
