On the Eastern Coast of Central America, Belize is in the Hurricane Zone.  Those who can afford it, build their homes accordingly, making extensive use of concrete, even for roofs.  The weight means a correspondingly robust structure is required, adding to the overall strength of the building.

Nearby three-story building.

Note concrete posts and beams holding concrete roof covered by tiles.
That ain't going to blow away!
