Could I pile on here and ask locals about the hurricane weather? Do you all have special insurance to cover in the event of hurricanes? Has anyone had really bad damage due to weather like this? Other than that, it sounds like Wilmington may be right up our alley as a retirement relocation choice.

Pretty sure the main costs of living in ILM and surrounding areas that are related to hurricanes lie with those who have property on the beach/islands and those with property in low lying areas prone to flooding. Otherwise insurance should be relatively normal.

Thanks. I was, of course, aware that you'd get some pretty stormy weather at times, but beachfront isn't where we would end up, so that's encouraging. People like to try to scare you away from locations anywhere near the coast.
