Hurricane-proof houses: The new normal
Tampa Bay dodged a bullet with Hurricane Irma. Despite the National Hurricane Center's warnings for a direct Category 4 hit and 12-foot storm surge, Irma weakened and passed east of the metro area, leaving behind minor damage. If the storm had slammed into Tampa Bay it could have damaged or completely destroyed more than 450,000 homes, causing over $175 billion in losses, according to CoreLogic.
