Description

This investigation was born out of various follow-ups to stories about the four hurricanes that hit Florida in 2004. The reporters, concerned about how the high number of mobile homes in Tampa Bay held up the hurricanes, decided to investigate how dangerous they really are. The reporters found that most of the homes were built prior to the established safety standards after Hurricane Andrew. The high number of unsafe mobile homes in the Tampa Bay area means the region could face catastrophic damage when hurricanes strike again.
