I've seen that before, lot of the houses near where I grew up in Florida are all reinforced cinder block with a brick outer layer, that have stood up to Cat 3 without a single hiccup.
Yea that would be the ticket, block houses typically do well in hurricanes, however at 4 and 5 will peel the roofs off of most houses at that point the only thing left will be those block walls.

Something even more eye opening is the fact that with a roughly 70 mile wide eyeball, its bsically a 70 mile wide EF-2, EF-3 torndo with gusts. Thats, incredible. That doest include how for out the hurricane force winds (74 mph) go outwards from the center. MY prayers to all, and have helped load MRE's, water, diapers, and baby food into a semi at my local grocery store.
Wow..I never thought if it that way..
If I understand that right you are saying the eye is the equivalent of a 70 mile wide tornado?
