Yes and no.
According to Wikipedia [1], (and using British English spelling and
hyphenation) a soft-storey building has one ore more soft storeys (=levels
in OSM speak).
So if we know which level(s) are weak we need a way to map this. In case we
only know that the building has a  "soft level" we need a different tagging.
