Psychology of Hurricanes, Investing too!

Interesting article about why people know what to do, but don't.

Well written IMHO;

I've vacationed quite a bit around the New Bern NC area. It is a relatively poor area where a man can get land with a mud ramp into the swamp and from there out into the saltwater. They can let their dogs run wild with the deer and no one will bother them at all. It can be an incredibly low-cost-of-living place to live in a double wide as long as one is healthy and likes neighbors with rebel flags and No Trespassing signs posted everywhere. If one inherited the trailer and the land from dad, then so much the better. The folks don't have much of value anyways except their dogs, a boat or two, and a truck. They don't need to care about high water and any stinking hurricanes.

Maybe unclemick will drop by and post about all the fish camps he has lived in.

And is is a visual story (still free this week) on the destruction and despair in coastal NC. The same places underwater two years ago from Hurricane Matthew are underwater today from Hurricane Florence.

Don't forget that many people did evacuate. This story just shows those that did not.
