Please do not be fooled by that fallacy. We actually are in a flood zone, in Palm Valley and live in a custom built stick home and nothing happened in either storm. We have friends down the road that had CBS and flooded - so honestly, CBS is only better protection from winds, not flooding. Also, there is a significant difference between production builder quality and custom built. Hurricane strapping for the roof and elevation of the ground floor are far more important for storm protection around here.
100% agree with you. There's really no need for concrete block unless you're oceanfront or across the street from oceanfront. The new non-oceanfront homes being built on Ponte Vedra Blvd only have the 1st floor as CB. Upper floors are stick.

+3. No need for concrete block houses in this region unless you're very close to ocean-front.
