Eta has restrengthened into a hurricane this morning. It will be a very impactful storm and is making a straight B line to my location in florida. They are talking about the possibility of it spawning tornadoes..I dont know what it is going to do and how much damage it will cause even if it is not the Cat 4/5 it once was. Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it.

Good luck and all the best.

What i don't quite understand, however, is that despite such volatile weather phenomena building houses out of essentially wood and drywall is (as far as I am ware) still quite common in the US. Why is that?

Not really, considering that they need to be rebuilt time and time again after having been blown away - literally. A nice example of "Those who buy cheaply do buy twice"

Hope you stayed safe mate? I love severe weather and storms especially, if a hurricane was heading for me I’d be very excited as one of my life goals is to fully experience a hurricane and see the eye.

Hah, it weakened dramatically before it ever struck me, a bit of gusty winds and rains from a then 60mph tropical storm that didnt really do anything at all. Wind shear tore the storm apart and cooler waters limited how stong it coulda got.
