Nice retort, tell that to those who lost their homes and/or family members. Iíll stand by my previous comment of ďyou clearly have no idea what youíre talking aboutĒ

Iím curious what your benchmark is in fatalities and damage to be considered ďsignificantĒ?

The recent flooding in Arizona was from the Pacific hurricane Rosa that came North as a tropical storm. Doesn't happen all that often but a little rain in the desert can produce some impressive flooding.

I have wondered about Houston. They've had three "500 year" floods in three years. I am curious as to whether their growth will at least slow down. I suppose it's easy to rationalize moving to Miami by saying, "We'll be gone before it's underwater," but 3 hits in 3 years?? Maybe not so much.

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."
I did read all the way through the link but thanks for the suggestion. My quotes were directly from the article.

To answer the question, I think "no", generally. For the same reason some don't mind living in Oklahoma's tornado alley, or the West Coast for earthquakes. You always live in most locations with some risk, and that is part of just being alive. Of course, the risk factors can be greater or lesser in particular areas. It becomes an individual judgement as to what kind of risk you want to take.

Personally, I would not want to live in North Texas, Oklahoma, or Kansas due to the tornado threat, even though the odds of being injured are quite low. I would also not choose the Oregon Coast due to an overdue subduction quake that would be devastating. Again, odds of being injured or killed still low. You simply have to choose with an understanding of the risks. It is that simple.

Where do you get that itís the opposite?

Most domestic migration in Southern states is just between other Southern states. North to South regional migration has been vastly overblown for decades by people who have no idea how to look at the available data.

Iím any case, people should be restricted from living in the most vulnerable areas.

Youre middle statement isnt true. Dallas gets massive numbers of migrants from the Midwest as does Atlanta from the North East. Its much more true than people making the opposite move. The only statement where that might be the case is Houston but that has way more to do with the oil industry than hurricanes.
