Millions of Floridians have survived tropical storms and hurricanes.

There’s a reason why major hurricanes get a lot of headlines—they’re quite rare! There have only been a handful of them in the past decade, which has been one of the most active in recent memory. While it is true that nothing can stop a category 5 hurricane from leveling just about any structure, no matter how stoutly made, it is possible to protect homes from less powerful storms, which are the most common kind!
