The increase in population and building has created many problems. Beaches are getting smaller and building density is increasing. This increasing density increases the changes for large developed areas to be in the path of a hurricane and the larger the developed area, the greater the potential for property lose and deaths. Both coastal development will continue and hurricanes be spawned and make landfall. If we are to minimize property lose along our coast, we must construct buildings that will resist the water and wind forces in hurricanes.
