I don't think it's nesscessity stoping people. Look at California for example prior to the 90's it was the go to state to move to for jobs and weather despite the unexpected Earthquakes that happens in the state. Phenoix Arizona has the hottest temperatures in the country but it still attracts lots of new-commers. I think weather only plays a small part and people care more about the quality of life.

No. Some people are so averse to cold and snow they'll move to a place that gets hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, scorpions, ferocious wild bears, poisonous snakes, poisonous spiders, frequent temperatures above 100, and don't even speak the same language, just in order to avoid some cold weather and having to shovel snow.

I live on the "back side" of the WNC mountains in northeast TN. We get virtually no extreme weather here.

Florence dropped probably 6+ inches of rain in Boone, NC, which is about fifty miles from my residence as the crow flies. We got maybe, maybe, an inch after the rest of the mountains broke it up and it moved further inland. We got some incidental rain from Michael, but not much.

I've never wanted to live in Charleston. Beyond that, the Carolina coast doesn't have much in the way of employment, so I doubt I'd live there anyway. Tampa has been remarkably spared from hurricane activity going back decades. There is no way I'd live in New Orleans or Houston.

The inland Southeast Cities (Atlanta, Nashville, Birmingham, Charlotte, and etc.) don't seem to have this problem.

I'm still moving from SE Michigan to the Charlotte area in August. I've lived in NC before and I prefer NC to MI.

I was thinking about moving to Corpus but I changed my mind after Harvey.I saw some of the devastation from Harvey and it looked like a nuke went off...I dont want to go through that.I prefer inland areas.

There has been a marked increase in devastating storms, and itís going to get worse. Hurricanes are getting stronger and lasting longer.

Climate change is real. Your post is nonsense.
