I can't live in the place where I grew up, where I went to school, where my best friends are, where my family is. The economy is too poor. So we live
where there are jobs.So I go back and visit once in a while.
No one is obligated to make sure everyone gets to live where they want too.
And comparing a meteor strike is comparing apples and oranges. Because basically everyone is SOL on that one. There isn't much of a choice where to
I only live a light hurricane area, and we are prepared. I am no saying people can't live there. But if you decide to live in a hurricane bowl, have
the common sense to be prepared and have a plan.
Like I said, the majority of people left behind were elderly. and the majority of them had a way out.
The theory is that most of them were around when Camille hit. Camille was a much bigger storm then katrina, (there was another storm too but I can't
remember the name) but didn't do nearly the damage.
the big difference here is that all the wetland that protect the gulf have been developed or eroded away.
Making Katrina more destructive then necessary.
So they thought there wasn't a reason to leave.Not knowing the state sold them out to developers.
