Are yurts safe in storms?

Yurts are very resilient structures—especially when upgraded with snow and wind reinforcement kits. Their round shape means high winds can flow around the outside, putting less wind pressure on the structure than a rectangular building with flat sides. Even Pacific Yurts‘ largest yurt can be enhanced to withstand roof snow load up to 100 pounds per square foot and wind up to 142 miles per hour.
