The damage caused by Hurricanes Erin, Opal and Marilyn which hit the state of Florida in 1995 to buildings and other civil structures was studied. Results revealed that nonengineered one-storey buildings, including residential buildings, incurred severe damage and destruction due to the strong winds caused by the hurricanes. On the other hand, the frames of engineered buildings and structures exhibited good resistance to hurricane-induced damage.
