Front Door

Does anyone know how to strengthen a double front door. It is held in place on one side with a bolt from the top and on the other side, just the lock. Had heard that it would not hold in high wind. Can't figure out how to reenforce it.

add a bolt on the bottom. Mine has bolts top and bottom plus the lockset.
Would have to be heck of a wind.

In addition to the top and bottom bolts that SQL recommended, you might look up astragals.
