Looks like this house is in the north, BOO... put that house in Florida and give it a REAL test... lmao hogwash! haha

But can it survive a tsunami?

Good luck. I mean, this house versus 30 foot storm surge as well as 155MPH winds (cat 4) .... I will not take that bet. We should stop kidding ourselves and acknowledge that radical steps are needed to improve the environment and prevent further global warming (leading to stronger, more frequent hurricanes). I am really starting to think that this was some reverse psychology, straw man video.

It’s only helps with flooding not hurricanes. All the glasses would be destroyed within 5 mins and I’m not sure if the building would be standing after. It would be dried tho lol 😂

You might want to showcase your house on a station other than Fake News CNN. Simply put, more people watched SpongeBob reruns this week than those who have seen your house on Fake News CNN.

How is this house designed to survive a hurricane? You've shown how it can accommodate medium flooding, but that does not accommodate *a hurricane* in that wind is not presented as an obstacle. Perhaps this video is better named as a utility for those looking for flood mitigation.
ShyvulnerableTeddy (1 day ago)
I'm sorry but has anyone noticed that large glass windows. If anything comes flying at that you won't be protected much. So it might be flood proof but definetly is not hurricane proof.

ShyvulnerableTeddy They are hurricane impact resistant windows.

Really B'S, get Ads Fund to Ads All Side Windows House for Hurricane !!!! Damned, how many grade Do All glass wimdows ? Hence facing direct impact on front side. If you said Build a Steal+cement Ship Pattern with minor Face to face direct hit/impact of hurricane force or windows grade 5~10 time stronger then 3 layer windows!!!,.. i Might be Impressed, But this Shit..... 😇😇 damned, Nowadays Storm and Hurricane Grade increased to 18 above. Man😎😎 CNN getting worst in Anything but it Allies Make Up News.

130mph winds and those windows are all gone. You'll have to board everything up. Even then the odds of the windows breaking from the pressure are still high.

I don't think a meager 2 feet above FEMA standards is anywhere near high enough. I'd shoot for 30 feet. These hurricanes are getting stronger every year, and I heard Houston's floods were as high as 20 feet.
Bruce Lee (9 hours ago)
yeah 2 feet is not enough, although that house is in New Jersey, which is not as bad as the southern coast lines. Also, their location is not exactly at the coastline, they seem located next to a river.
Anthony B (2 days ago)
Flooding in the city was simply because it's so much rain in a little amount of time. 2 feet above FEMA is to protect against the seas storm surges. I think that will protect the house for the next decade but with sea levels rising and storms getting stronger. It wont work forever and we cant just building homes in the air like a skyscraper.

A house that is earthquake, hurricane and tornadoe proof will become a thing in the future with climate change.

hurricanes should be the least of their worries. Prowlers, burglars, and voyeurs should be their main concern.

I was in a hurricane proof windowed building when Irma hit. Nothing happened.
Mark Dougherty (16 hours ago)
facing the water with no trees around also removes the possibility of a branch or other projectile breaking the window, which is how that happens most of the time. If the windows are a strong enough type of glass they would be fine in most cases.

You could watch the flood through the windows- yikes!!! Hope they dont break in

People that build houses close to the beach or within flood zones should be required to sign waivers absolving the tax payers of any emergency relief in the future.

+ULTRA KWON how about the zombies bite the living hell out of the sharks and crocodiles that make a bigger prove on land and in water. I'm lucky I live in the UK like just block borders and blow up channel tunnel and live on a giant island. I think Ill be fine here as we don't have crocodiles or sharks either
ULTRA KWON (2 days ago)
If there's a flood, the zombies will drown if crocodiles and sharks don't get to them first.

Beach houses NEED to be designed to survive hurricanes; the cost to reconstruct non- hurricane survivable houses is astronomical and results in higher insurance rates for everyone.
Art Curious (23 hours ago)
Connie Crawford , everybody should petition their congressman or senators to mandate this because in the end everyone around the country ends up paying for it through tax funded disaster relief funds which are always in the billions. All homes should be concrete, 10 ft above sea level, with channels for water flow, and windows should be rated at 200mph.

+R.C. Staab also on SJ shore. We built 14' above flood and hurricane graded/bolted roof. Pass throughs in foundation, etc. But most honest part of designing my house and of your philosophy - "we can only do what we do and mother nature will take back what she will". There's a price to pay to have the best sunrise and sunset on earth with amazing memories and perfect beach days. Cheers
That's most of the South and Eastern coast.

Don't you live in earthquake country.? At least we get a warning. (and hello from your old Zip2 days)
