i plan to see the 5 v crimp roofs still intack like allways.

shingles, tile, standin seam, everything but 5 v crimp blows off
in 150 mph.
period.

gweedo.

LET US KNOW HOW IT GOES. TORNADOES CAN GET UP TO 300 MPH WINDS.

well,
couldnt see to much this time.
the police were keepin people out.
i did get into a few of the hard hit neighborhoods and foun the usuall.
metal roofs seam to fair the best.

Funny thing about tornadoes is that they can destroy structure A, and identical structure B, ten feet from it can get out without a scratch.

yeah well this wasnt the case.
theese to houses received the same amount punishment.
structer b simply had a better roof.
aluminum does not work well in florida for a roof.
to soft a metal and it gets snacthed rite off.
the same goes for standing seam roofs that are fastened on one side
of the panel. blow rite off.

gweedo.
