Ocean Safe House

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Officials of OceanSafe say the hurricane-resistant model home built in New Orleans as a demonstration project survived Hurricane Isaac undamaged. The home, as well as several other company-built structures around the New Orleans area, took no damage from the hurricane's winds and heavy rain. The company built a steel-paneled demonstration home earlier this year using materials and technology designed to withstand hurricanes and earthquakes. Hurricane Katrina took a heavy toll on housing in the city when it made landfall in August 2005. Isaac came ashore the night of Aug. 28-29, with hurricane-force winds and heavy rain.
