There was a lot of heavy hurricane activity in the mid 2000s as well. Don't recall it being an effective scarecrow for migration.

I know that there was Matthew and Sandy in that time frame, but they were below category 3. Three and above is considered a major hurricane.

Rosa is an example that even Arizona gets hurricanes.

Sergio's remnants are threatening the I-35 corridor right now. The media has been concentrating their coverage on the western exurbs of Austin, but even North Texas has had heavy rain. This is a fraction of the rain that fell on Houston during Harvey last year. The studies last year said that San Antonio and Austin's hilly topography is an advantage if Harvey-level rains hit the Hill Country, but Sergio is proving that the hills and limestone are working against Austin.

About a month ago, Dallas had evening rush hour ruined after the freeway flooded after an abnormal tropical rainstorm made its way far inland. For once, the typical summertime tropical rains passed over Houston and surprisingly hit over North Texas instead. Now the rain causing the flooding in Austin is also dumping massive amounts over the Metroplex and flood waters are going downstream from Austin and Dallas towards the edges of the Houston area as they reach the Gulf of Mexico.

It's not looking any better anytime soon--there are two-story homes along the Llano that will be 2 feet underwater by tomorrow. Smaller dams are overflowing over the spillways and Lake Travis may not be able to absorb a third rainstorm.

In Chicagoland before midnight on New Years Eve, it was -6 F in suburban Aurora, O'Hare airport was -1 F, and the Lakefront near downtown was 3 F. When my freezer is warmer than outside, something is going terribly wrong!

Hopefully that motivation lasts til March. lol I can't wait for the snow in the mountains here either, but living in it for months on end is kind of counterproductive in my case.

Look at Florida for example 100 years ago it was the least populated state in the south even behind Mississippi, but now it's the third largest state in the country surpassing NY of all places, and the gap is widening at an immense pace already a million in between them, and it's only been 3 years.

But we all do pay for their choices through FEMA, through higher insurance rates, through the Coast Guard, deployment of emergency personnel, and so on. And it's not just the coast- it's for anyone who lives in any high risk zone. Of course, they'll not all move, just be aware that we all do pay for these choices so it's not just their business.

The Southeast was a net contributor to the Midwest in the latest year available, 2016. And you guys didnít read what I said. I said most domestic migration in the region is from the same region. This is true for all states in all regions.

Most people who live in the coastal southeast are not ignorant of hurricane risk - they simply accept that risk as a potential price of living where they want. Just like people in California accept earthquake and wildfire risks, or how people in the Midwest accept tornado risk. I don't see hurricanes affecting much at all in the long term.
Any reason why the rest of the country should have to subsidize that risk with billions in disaster relief because people there are too selfish or short-sighted?
