Good luck to all affected by Tropical Storm Barry. Sounds very serious.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

If I lived in an area where I needed to prepare or evacuate, I would. Otherwise, it's just weather hysteria. Welcome to planet Earth.

I think US taxpayers would be better off buying up property in flood prone areas than continuing to build taller and taller levees.

And the marshlands that help to curb inland flooding need to be restored in areas where they are needed.

It was being looked at post Katrina until certain agenda driven people got in the middle of it

In Harris County (Houston Tx), if the damage exceeds a certain % of home value, you will not be able to get a permit to rebuild and you will be bought out.


Ike was a much bigger storm than Katrina but it is almost never talked about.

You figure out the difference.

I would expect a lot more chatter about the costliest Atlantic hurricane in recorded history (Katrina $125 billion) than the sixth most costly (Ike $38 billion).

Some people would consider the storm that did nearly 4 times more damage to the be the "bigger" storm.

The difference: $87 billion

The worrisome part of Barry is the potential for storm surge to back up the (already flooding) Mississippi-it sounds like some of the earthen levees in NOLA may get damaged. Hope everybody gets through OK!

And paying out flood insurance so people can rebuild in flood-prone areas.

Why should taxpayers pay at all? The government doesn’t pay my heating bill when it’s cold or fix my roof when a tornado comes through. Don’t spend my money on other peoples weather and geography.

4 times more damage... or 4 times more money paid out.
Big difference.

Harvey was the most expensive.
Still people waiting for help.

Katrina killed 10 times as many people as either Ike or Harvey. That's human beings, not property.

That detail alone is enough to generate some extra buzz, and also indicative of the level of actual damage done.

Harvey is tied with Katrina for expense.

Again, the difference is 1600 dead human beings.
