You may want to hire in inspector to go through your home and show you where there are any areas of weakness. Once you know this, you can hire a licensed contractor to make any necessary repairs.
If you don't have shutters to protect your home, or if you are willing to put in impact windows and doors, this is an additional item that will help to keep your home safer from storms.
Something most people don't think about is having a home recaulked. Because of the heat in Florida, the caulk tends to contract after about 10 years, so small openings can get larger. Generally these are not noticeable upon cursory glance. However, there are potential leakage areas around every window and door opening in a home.
Gutters and leaders should be checked and repaired periodically. These tend to rust around the edges and near corners where water collects. The result is that water may run over and start to rot the wooden soffits that hold up these drains. Have the faulty items checked and repaired or replaced.
I now pronounce you protected.
