Pilot light blows out by wind

I have two natural gas hot water heaters. One exhausts to the north and one to the west, they are both in the basement. The one exhausting to the west pilot light goes out when we have high winds...I have tried putting up wind breaks outside to no avail. Can anyone help me.

When you say it exhausts to the west, do you mean out the west wall of the house and stops? If so, you should extend the flue above the roof line of the house. If the vent is terminated along side the house you could (and likely do) have problems with the exhaust backing up into the house.
