Not for me. Why not leave the barrier islands barren as they evolve to barrenness? No rebuilding. In flood zones, ya get one bailout. After that, you're self-insured. I don't want to subsidize the wealthys' ocean views any more than I have to. Remove the Sanibel causeway and other debris. The end.Now as for building in low lying areas, thats another topic. Once you get off the beach they are building slab homes every day in areas that have flooded at least once in the past 5 years. It's insane, but thats a rant for another day.
I'm blown away (intended) by the old folks with no trans to get out. Just spitballing here but I suspect it's cheaper to send buses to get them in advance as a precaution than to send helicopters after the fact. Colossal failure of leadership.
Yes sir.it's nice to be near the beach and all - but perhaps its worth noting that the shoreline is in a period of rapid advance.
two ways to look at it. not often geologic time overlaps with human time. so, we're either lucky to witness the changes. or not.
