Which preventative care options are the best for natural disasters?

Asked by sensin (243points) September 3rd, 2014

Is it better to invest a lot more money into an all weatherproofed home, or is it better to build a cheaper home, fly away to another state before the natural disaster arrives, and just come back to rebuild the cheap home once the storm stops?

What other preventative options are there?

I am thinking insurance would be an option.
For myself, I would go with the more expensive, stronger built home. There are new construction options coming available all the time. There are great new innovations to protect homes for hurricanes, tornadoes, and earthquakes. It is a good Idea to shop around, make sure you are getting what you pay for, and that it is as good as a builder claims.
I would consider leaving the area, just in case, depending on the severity expected, and resources available.
