Harnessing wind power with gigantic windmills is one way to go but this floating windmill grid sure sounds a lot more interesting.

I am a fan of wind and solar power and this looks interesting. My question is how well would this stand up against the ever more frequent hurricanes in the gulf of Mexico? From what we have seen in Louisianna recently, land based transmission lines and power plants are no match for hurricane winds and rain.
