Florida's cavalier approach to devastating hurricanes.


That one's pretty simple. They just don't happen often enough to be genuinely concerned. It's been ten years since a hurricane hit Florida.(Thank you Global Climate Change) Even when they do, most are non-events. They don't happen suddenly, we see them coming weeks in advance. They can be pretty nasty if you live on the coast and suffer a direct hit, otherwise it's just a windy rainy day. Often what looks absolutely awful to the rest of the nation on radar really isn't. News crews always get out to the beaches and film the surf and the stoplights swinging in the wind along with the street signs whipping back and forth. Palm trees flapping around make good video too, but when it comes right down to it "devastating" hurricanes are pretty rare.
