Do they know something we don't?

This little snippet from Product-Reviews suggests that Safeway Homes are now starting to build new UK properties that are capable of withstanding hurricane force winds without suffering major structural damage.

Now, I don't recollect the UK ever being hit by a genuine hurricane, so just who is predicting that we may be seeing one or two in the future?

And then I spotted this from Sustainable Development International, which, albeit US based, is predicting that Super Hurricanes are now to be expected, at least on their particular side of the big pond.

Maybe its time to reconsider building that same underground bunker that my parents always talked about doing during the cold war?

Maybe it gets you a better HIPS rating?

So.... time to stock up the cellar!

Glad it has a nice dry feel thanks to my Solareventi dehumidifier (though I suspect it may be a tad inactive during a Cat 5).
