Nah OP, technology is advancing, which would only improve the fortifications of structures along the shore. Just look at how Miami continues to grow and grow, intricately too.

Texas gets hurricanes for sure.

We live four hours from the coast in Texas, and we still had to replace our roof after Hurricane Ike.

We went ten years without a hurricane hitting the U.S. Now a few hit, and the sky is falling. Relax. Weather changes. Always has.

Sorry I meant to say only Arizona does not get hurricanes. Yes, Texas hurricanes are bad actually.

I don't think its a huge problem for people moving there. Sometimes I wish it was more of a problem than it is for people moving to Florida. As others have mentioned, the inland cities along the Piedmont, Birmingham - Raleigh don't have too serious of problems. You can probably get as close as Columbia to the shores without receiving too much damage. But all of the coastal cities (Savannah, Charleston, Miami etc.) are just going to get hit. Periodic flooding of the rivers isn't nearly as terrible as the kind of damage the coastal cities endure.

I think that it will probably slow the tide of people living there. But the fact that so many people live in Florida despite everyone knowing this proves that people will brave the hurricanes. Even Charleston SC is having a population explosion. So although it might make some a-priori sense that people wouldn't move, it doesn't seem to be true in reality.

As I said, nothing hitting the U.S. of any significance for TEN YEARS.

You might want to read all the way through your link- also a date of Sept 20th does not include the latest hurricanes.

From 2/3 down in the link you cited they write:

"A review of existing studies, including the ones cited above, lead us to conclude that: it is likely that greenhouse warming will cause hurricanes in the coming century to be more intense globally and have higher rainfall rates than present-day hurricanes."
