But nothing you do will protect you from flooding. Not living there seems like a better choice.

I suppose someone should tell all the people in southeast Asia who live in stilt housing that's the case.


For that matter, a large part of Amsterdam is, in essence, built on stilts.

It's possible to build houses to stand up better to extreme weather, but it'll take a long time to catch on, either due to cost, aesthetics, material or whatever.

And I seriously doubt a dome would withstand an EF4 or higher tornado, but admittedly that's just based on gut feeling, rather than any scientific evidence.
