      If I had the bank to build a beach house, it would be of comnercial grade that's above code and can withstand a category 5 hurricane. Same thing for a category f5 tornado.

      Because they thanked the bus driver during the storm

      Welp, Florida is changing its building code after this. Especially if Michael gets reclassified as a cat 5 storm. That is the holy grail of houses in Florida. Believe me they’ve been trying to figure out how to build a house that can withstand cat 5 winds for decades.

      If one wants to live on the beach, build for Tsunami's and Hurricanes. These gentlemen are smart.

    6. Jim Frankovich

      I'm just here to say FUCK CNN. YEP ,THAT'S ALL.

      Terrible interview.

    12. aleksa99se

      This is like an interview with three little pigs, stone house owners. :) Neighbors thought we are crazy to build house of bricks! Let them have their straw and sticks...

    13. Joe Paul

      They must have given him a couple $100 dollars to say that

    14. kenny9maq

    15. tonshmar

      Ugh, this was horrible to watch. 🤦‍♀️ SMH Crazy interview.

    16. Justin W

      Unfortunately there's no town left, so his property value has probably plumetted regardless

    17. Devin Jump

      15-25% more expensive wow... well worth it... good grief...

    18. jokalee

    19. Alex Chaparro

    20. Amina Ibrahim

      I would never want 2 be the only house that survives because look how sad it is staying alone in the middle of the destruction

    22. John Billingsفيديو-43GUoyz4fvM.html Keep cutting construction costs... how's that working for you?

      1. John Billings

        But Katrina was a "special storm" and the forest fire was a "special fire"... horseshit.

      2. John Billings

        Some may need to be looked at?

      Beautiful Home, great guys

      It’s interesting that the house directly behind was probably protected from the reinforced house. It also stole the entire ocean view of the little house that sits behind as it’s only one story. A lot of people comment about Real estate values. And yes it’s dumb to build right on the edge of the ocean. However, that land is still the most desirable beautiful location were you could build a house. I am Magine that only state regulation would prohibit rebuilding of the houses. Clearly the standards need to be increased as category five hurricane’s will become more frequent from climate change despite the ineptitude of the orange faced come-over idiot.

      Only God did what they themselves are taking credit for. maybe they prayed to God for safety or maybe God saved them out of his favour so that they are grateful to Him.

      I love CNN!! Amazing company.

      "How much did it cost?" He asks? Less than it would if they had to completely replace it! Less than all their neighbors will end up paying! Whatever it cost, it was money well spent. Disaster and loss mitigation is ALWAYS more cost effective than disaster response/ rebuild, repair, replace. Dangers are everywhere, they can't be avoided. All people can do is manage the risk. Most people just don't take risk seriously. The danger of living in hurricane or tornado country, or in the shadow of an active volcano is CLEAR. But the risk begins when you want to build your house directly on that 100 meter thick mud flow, or, "Lehar," deposited by the last few eruptions. If you spend an extra couple hundred dollars for insurance, but the volcano doesn't erupt for another thousand years, is that a waste of money? I would ask everyone living in and around the communities surrounding Mt. St. Helens, Rainier, Baker, Fuji, and Pinatubo, who have been hearing the warnings for generations. And then I would ask the people who live in Mexico City, Japan, and Indonesia, who have lost absolutely everything under tons and tons of ash, rock, and pumice just in the last 30 years. The spillway of the Oroville Dam in California failed last year because of a small indistinct fracture caused by substandard concrete used in it's original installation due to "cost cutting." The total cost of the failure, in today's dollars, would have been enough to build three more, "World's Largest Dams," up or down river. Cut cost now and pay more later.

      I saw the thumb nail and laughed too hard then I should of

    29. Clarice Gwanya

      It is God mercy's !! They need to pray and ask God same question!

    30. Shackaloo

      OMG! I'm absolutely shocked to see Crap News Network covering actual news!

      I need to start investing in a hurricane home. It may cost more but it's worth it regardless of the code that code standard is what gets people homes swept away. This reminds me of Noah and the ark the people criticize him but look at who survived at the beginning and the End of the Terrible Weather.

    32. troye's girl

      There's still a house standing at the back though, might check that out

    33. srt hellcat

    40. Justin Y.’s Evil Twin

      Oh my god CNN is the WORST. I saw all the comments about the host interrupting the whole time but I was thinking nahh can’t possibly be that bad. Then I saw the end

    41. Great Fighter

    42. Urtrashkid LOL

    43. Ivone de Figueiredo

    44. Liam Kelly

    45. Doctor Astronomy

      CNN you guys suck!

    46. Rip Blade

      Hello people btw Istated for hurricane michle is was scary I was in my house during it. My whole roof us gone and dont call me a liar b have proof

    47. Magnus Bergner

      Aah. The joy of listening to someone smart enough to think "Ok, the minimum build is this but the minimum is what gets blown down every hurricane, what is the maximum build I can get within my budget?". Building to code basically only ensures that the house is and will be liveable and not fall down on you if the wind blows. Building beyond code is what gets you a house that will be just as good in a hundred years as it was for you. Building smaller but better cost about the same and is not a sin despite what some people seem to think.

    48. Willy p

      Don't believe anything that comes from CNN

    49. Whitefox

      It was’t material or structure issue! Fortunately the house was in the eye of the hurricane!
