There is a building in downtown Seattle that is 76 stories tall. We had a very serious windstorm on the day of Bill Clinton's first inauguration. Trees were blown down, small people were blown down in crosswalks, power was knocked out to half the region, and one friend had the misfortune to have lunch in the club on top of that very tall building. Light fixtures were swaying, any collection of water - in a glass or the toilet bowl - was sloshing about, it was a very scary experience, particularly for anyone given to motion sickness.

Now can you imagine a 110 story building in Miami in a hurricane? I'm getting a wee bit seasick.
