FORT MYERS, Fla.-- Before a storm make sure your mobile or manufactured home is secured.

Homeowners need to make sure their homes are anchored down because it's the law in Florida.  Tie-downs need to be checked once a year and all tie-down installers need to be licensed by the state.  A typical tie-down installation costs less than 2,000 dollars and usually takes less than a day to complete.
