I see the problem a little differently.
When we rebuild, we rebuild the same crap houses made basically of sticks and chalk! Of course the next display of raw power by Mother Nature will
knock them down.
This is the 21st Century. We have the technology to build houses to withstand most of what Mother can throw at us. The Houses we build will not
withstand a lateral force against the walls. A bit of water through and all the wall boards fall back to their original chalk state.
So we bulldoze the mess, send it to landfill and start over with the same silly construction.
Why not concrete lift panel walls with a good concrete roof. Sure a flood may damage our goods inside the house, but the house would still be
Same applies to Tornado areas. Build with Earth-berm technology, it works!
The problem is one of sucking us in. You are told that you can't afford to build in newer technologies. So instead you build crap over and over and
Sucked in, time and time and time again.
