home destroyed? move!

POST #    390

okay, this may be a tad insensitive, but if you live in the outer banks, you should probably move after this latest hurricane hit. you live on a narrow strip of sand that nature makes smaller and smaller each year. is that not enough of a hint? or maybe the hurricanes that hit every couple of years. that might serve as a warning, no? am i the only one that thinks that people living in some places is just foolish? and should the rest of the people in the country have to foot the bill for the maintenance of some sand? i mean, if someone wants to live there, fine. if the insurance companies want to ensure their homes, great. but i think there are times when nature beats the desire of man.

i'm not articulating myself very right now (food coma), but read more in the times about nature and the outer banks.

I soooooooooooooo agree with you on this. Living here in San Diego, everyone who has money wants to live right on the beach cliffs overlooking the ocean. Yes, it is beautiful, but every year those damn cliffs erode and their yards are smaller and smaller. So what gets done about it? The city gets their big tractors to pile up a water breaking wall of some type to "delay" the effects of the erosion. Gets who gets to pay for it? Yep, all us who live in sunny CA. Makes me mad!!!! :) Good topic.

i think insurance companies should stop giving out new policies.
