Beats the heck out of me. Good luck.

I've lived through two hurricanes in Louisiana back in the late 50s. I built a yurt and it is solidly anchored to a deck and to several concrete ground anchors. FYI, any yurt exposed to a real hurricane is gonna be 'Gone With the Wind'. Wall covering won't make a whit of difference. It'll be shredded. It's a tent, not a concrete blockhouse. Even a yurt solidly anchored at every lath cross to a concrete pad, and with the roof rafters lashed to the ground, is gonna be destroyed. Believe me.

Don't let the stop you from building your yurt. However if you do so, and know a 4 or 5 category hurricane is gonna pass through, you need to evacuate the area, or at least get to real substantial shelter.
