Load Transfer from Porch Columns

One of my long time clients asked me to come take a look at a porch they want installed. They had a set of plans drawn question is where is the load going from the columns? They appear to just be sitting on the deck surface? Doesn't this present a problem? I also noticed no uplift protection speced out.

You could solid block it and set those post right on the decking or bring them down to the beam. Depends on what kind of posts you're using and uplift connectors should be specified.
