22. uh, don't you think people should have insurance for that? And if they're building in flood plains

and storm surge zones, do you really want to pay your taxes to have them rebuild? I DON"T and I am angry at having to pay for that. Flame away if you will.

I would rather the feds work with states to restore wetlands with the double benefit of helping bring back fish and wildlife as well as storm protection for residents. People should build well back and elevated from low lying areas. Ditto for businesses, sewage systems, power stations, etc.

And NYC subway system will be subject to this kind of flooding increasingly as global warming continues unabated so that, too, should be rethought long and hard.
