    I am very sorry for the folks who live on Florida’s coast and have to put up with these storms, but I cannot understand how any bank would finance a property there. I guess they figure out the risk and can calculate if the investment will be profitable. And what about insurance costs? Holy smoke, no insurance company that wanted to stay in business would underwrite a property there without some serious premiums and/or huge deductibles.

      Very true. As a former GEICO employee I can attest that the company quit underwriting homeowners insurance countrywide after 92’s Hurricane Andrew, it was that much of a loss. Now they only refer to partner companies, mainly Travelers.

    Unfortunate that Dorian has stalled just where it has, will be interesting to see reports from the island in the next few days; if it had blown over quickly that would have been at least one bright spot.

    Will be interesting to see when it does finally curve north , should not hit landfall in mainland USA

    The 1900 Galveston hurricane was no slouch, either. Whodathunkit – in the century prior, there were more and stronger hurricanes hitting the U.S. east coast, when CO2 was at supposedly safe levels. The CO2 warming hyped-pothesis has a lot of believers in it, yet zero science to back it up. A consensus of nodding heads is not science.
