I was talking to a friend of mine who lives near Panama City, FL.  Nearly a year after Hurricane Michael, he is finally getting back into his house.  He says the damage was caused by wind blowing water up through the vents in the roof soffits.  He went on to say that he had the same thing happen in 2004 when he lived in Stuart, FL.  I have been through several hurricanes over the years and have never had this problem and now I am wondering if I have just been lucky?  Is this a regular problem and if so, is there something I can do to prevent it?
