I think the Atlantic side is over due for one. I voted Cape Canaveral.

what would happen if a slow moving cat 5 hit Miami head on?

are the foundations sound, or would the towers start to topple like dominoes?

Most towers would not have foundation troubles, BUT many windows will blow in, water will soak the cheap drywall and the storm surge will ruin the mechanical rooms. Expect most buildings to be uninhabitable and remain so for years. Older buildings subject to deterrioration will be heavily damaged or destroyed. I hate to say it but just the thought of a Cat 5 hitting Miami gives me a feeling of excitement. The destruction of Hurricane Andrew was awe-inspiring. Just think if it would have made landfall 20 miles north!

Say, does the cluster of rain clouds they called TS Barry count as a hit? Then we won! (Tampa)

If you calculate hits by coastal mile, Florida is not the winner.
