oh yeah. doesn't the house implode if the winds catches it?Actually -- During Hurrican Wilma in 2005, there were 110 mile per hour winds. The roof peeled off the elementary school across the street from me. I was running from window to window / door to door putting towels down as the water was being forced in -- and they were all covered and boarded.
When all of the sudden I heard creaking and growling coming from the garage. I look and I see the garage door flexing right in front of my eyes as the eye of the storm was approaching and changing the direction of the wind.
I took some moving pads and blankets, draped them over the hood of the truck (3rd gen 2005 that was BRAND NEW) which was backed in, then let it roll ever so gently until it hit the garage door, bolstering it.
I swear that kept the garage door from blowing in. Truck wasn't harmed. Once you lose a garage door in a hurricane you're toast because the pressure will blow your house up from the inside out.
