Same thing with ocean front buildings, especially on stilts.
I was in the line of fire in Kelowna BC in 003. 258 homes destroyed, all in a subdivision pushed in to the rural area, relying on electric water pumps.
One rural property suffered damage. My friend Stans. They had enough water to put it out, but the firemen were told to leave Stan's place, and try and save the subdivision homes.
26,000 folks got evacuation orders, but we left some behind to man the water systems.
