Quote: I had the same situation during Frances. I just cracked open the front door to look out at the storm and the wind came in and rushed up the staircase and blew the attic ceiling door right off. This was only during a Cat. 2 storm. If it had been a Cat. 4 it may have caused the roof to lift. So, the bottom line is even if you are so eager to see out of a shutterred up house, don't open the door during the height of the storm. I only opened it a crack and this happened. Don' t let any air in.
I have a NW facing front door and a SE facing (go figure) rear door.
I could go out the front door without letting any wind in during Frances, but any attempt to open the rear door would have lots of bad juju coming in. I stuck to the front door as my primary mode of egress when I wanted to be outside during the nastiness.
