Wazungu wamezoea mara zote vitu vya bei nafuu kama nyumba zao nyingi hata zinazofikia 5-6 residential stories hujengwa kwa mbao tu, na inapotokea hali ya hewa kama upeopo wa kisulisuli hakuna kinachosalimika na inabaki kuokota mbao zilizozagaa ardhini. Tofauti na kwetu Afrika mapaa ndiyo yanayoezuliwa na kubaki kugharimia paa jipya kwa vile kuta hujengwa mathubuti kwa matofali au blocks. Nisingeshauri kuiga mtindo huu wa ujenzi wa nyumba kwa vile ni gharama nafuu lakini yatokeapo mabadiliko ya hali ya hewa na kusababisha dhoruba kali ni maafa tu. Picha hizi ni matukio ya Marekani siki hii. Residents work to clear storm damage after tornadoes moved through the area in Henryville, Indiana March 3, 2012.
