Rows of four- and five- and six-story buildings razed to their foundations.

Is this an exaggeration? Does razed to their foundations mean razed to the ground. By the way, I didn't find this expression/phrase in dictionaries.
It's not a standard phrase, but I would interpret is as having the same meaning.
