From USAtoday: As Hurricane Andrew memories fade, Florida weakens building codes. Former FEMA Administrator, a FL resident, admonishes the state on that bad move.
Update: See the blunt comments on this issue from Eric Holdeman, a fellow blogger and former local emergency manager.
I blogged on this one.
Interesting to see how things ebb and flow.
We need more disasters to keep people’s attention to the issue.
