Not only that, but Miami-Dade building codes are now some of the strictest in the country. After Andrew, things here are built to much better withstand hurricanes, which is alot more possible than say... trying to build something to survive an earthquake or tornado. Even if we suffered another direct hit from a storm as large as Andrew, I don't think we down here will ever see a repeat of the sheer extent of damage he caused.
