If the building envelope is one continuous wall of re-enforced concrete it is not going anywhere. We have for a long time had the building technology to stand up to these.

When it comes to a choice between stadium lights and astroturf for the football field and tornado shelters, they know there's football every Friday night every season.

Many if not most of the houses destroyed there were brick homes; it did no good. Are you blind, or just plain stupid? Pay attention.

That's right. There is already a cement foundation still there and easily used again. Pour concrete walls and a roof and it's not going anywhere again. And, I'm sure it could be done well below the countless millions of dollars certain politicians say it would cost.

I Just watched them pouring a 5 story concrete building in the Netherlands, floor, walls and celing. It's not going anywhere any time soon.

Gosh, looking at the pics, maybe they should move away from the long, yellow, pine bricks, and consider the cinder block kind.
Pictures of homes with brick walls are standing, albeit w/o a roof, windows, or doors.
Maybe open your eyes before your mouth.

What's with the insults, Aristotle?
Yes, that is what I said.
I'm not really getting your point here.
There are much better threads to post on if you have no higher aspirations other than to come off as a total asshat.
Sorry about your life,
Better luck next time.
