Today the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering tested the force of a two by four against metal mesh. FSU Police clocked the board at 37 miles an hour.
Doug Barkley with Barkley Consulting Engineers said, "We are going to be building generator enclosures throughout the state so that during a hurricane event people of special needs will have electricity, so we have to test for not only wind, but the impact."
Doug Barkley also says building reinforcements are required to withstand the impact of an object flying at 30 miles an hour.
