    That subway is about 15 minutes from my house. It's been very windy this morning in Sheffield.

    There is a door on the other side of te building, so the pressure will have pushed that side out

    Been out in it all day. I'm all for being swept off my feet but this is a little too much.

    They sure don't make buildings like they use to, eh? Seriously, if all it takes is 1 small open back door, to blow out the whole front wall (glass or not), then maybe that says something about the design.

    I've never really got that saying "they sure don't make <insert> like they used to" most probably often than not anything made now is far superior made back in the "good ole days" which is another saying I've never got... 2 world wars, mass genocide "good ole days, seriously? </vent> Sorry :LOL:

    The UK uses an out brick skin at a minimum for any building unlike the US where they are mostly wooden. Believe me, I would rather be living in a UK built house when it comes to any form of storm.

    And yet a little wind and the whole front wall comes blown out.

    My wood frame stands up against class 3 hurricanes and 2 tornado's ... problem?

    (I don't see the logic of it either. So don't feel bad)

    Pressure comes into play, regardless. Brick built buildings (all of the UK) can withstand winds than any wood built building, fact. Scotland had 142mph winds but only roofs were torn off which is understandle but the house structure was intact.

    The point is simple, whenever the UK experiences any severe winds the structural integrity of households is never in the news. Our designs for our climate manage to hold up to mother nature. All of our issues stem from trees falling onto our houses.

    Your level 15 and resistant to black holes wood frame, can I throw a little bit of petrol and a match against it, do the same against my double bricked wall. The point is there is hardly any wood in my house, only the roof. Your entire house is wood.

    Night.
