Where would you prefer to live-Metairie, Louisiana, or Long Beach, Mississippi?

I'd take LB any day of the week: Less people, less traffic, easier evacuation routes, less headache overall. When you movin'?

Thank you for your response. It might be about 3-5 years before I move somewhere else. I think I will like LB, considering it's size and the fact that it is very close to some bigger cities. I am currently living in Southeastern Nebraska and can't take any more of the horrible winters that last for months.

I would also like to know about the risk of flooding and property damage from hurricanes.

You can get creative and start googling the various aspects you're looking for. I'd imagine CD even has some info. I think I sent you a link for Long Beach on another thread. I hope you like the heat and the humidity. And it does get bone-chilling cold once in a while. Add the humidity on top of the cold, and you'll be reminded of what you left, on occasion.

Thank you. I actually don't mind heat and humidity at all, but I hate cold weather. Yes, you did send me some links for weather in Missisippi, which was very helpful.

Long Beach, hands down. And I'm from the area.

If you are concerned about hurricane flooding, there are some nice areas north of Long Beach, out in the county, that wouldn't have flooding. But, be prepared, Long Beach is a quiet little town. That's one of the things I like about it.

Metairie is one of the nicer areas of New Orleans, but some of those areas were flooded in Katrina, and the water just sits there like it's in a bucket. And that's not to mention the crime increase in the greater NO area since Katrina. There were already problems before then, but they've increased since then.

I live in Waveland MS just over the bridge from LB. I lived in upstate NY after hurricane Katrina and have just returned home finally finished. I can tell you this, flood insurance is relatively inexpensive, but be prepared for wind and home since katina much more expensive unless you plan on living South of I-10, there are some nice areas, I work at a school in the Kiln and it is growing, was before katrina, but now, wow, cannot believe. Just depends how close to coast you wish to be.
