Yes, I think that sooner or later all of the people that live right on the shore will learn that they are going to keep getting battered by these hurricanes over and over. I think that this one was a warning that they will keep coming for the rest of time.
I just do not see the weather getting any better with climate change getting worse. Most people think it is just some type of weather patterns but lets just agree the storms are getting worse. If people don't want to rebuild cites every year, they might want to move, or better yet, come up with ways to combat climate change.
Hurricane Sandy brought with it a lot of destruction in it's path. It will take a very long time to rebuild even with the help of charitable organizations. Why would you want to rebuild in the exact same spot so your home could be destroyed for a second time? Common sense says move back from the shore.
Hurricane Sandy was just the beginning. Climate change is causing the development of bigger, more violent hurricanes. Scientists predict these hurricanes will have more damaging effects on the shoreline, in the years to come. People living in coastal areas should strongly consider moving back, or finding higher elevation, to ensure that they don't lose their homes and belongings
Hurricane Sandy was not a warning for us to change out shoreline building policies. Hurricane Sandy fell in the unofficially classification known as superstorms. As far as superstorms go Sandy was the second-costliest hurricane in US history and the largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded, spanning more than 1,100 in diameter. Given size and scope it's damage to the East Coast, mainly New Jersey, was to be expected.
