“Even for a state accustomed to natural disasters, this flood is like nothing they’ve ever seen before,” Debbie says.
She spoke to Wayne Norwood, who, with his wife, Debbie, owns an antiques museum that was destroyed in the flooding. The couple, both retired police officers, also had four rental homes damaged in the disaster.
“We have fire insurance, but we don’t have flood insurance because we’re not in the flood zone,” Wayne Norwood tells Debbie. “And that’s what happened to thousands of people.” …
I’ve been through some pretty bad shit in my time, but I’ve never lost everything, like the thousands of people in the Louisiana floods. Donald Trump is visiting today, saying it will be rebuilt. Trump probably sees the destruction as an opportunity for money to be made, while insurance companies are getting ready to fleece hundreds of customers.
Hurricane Katrina and now this, Louisiana? In 2005, hundreds of thousands of Katrina refugees flooded into Texas and surrounding states, but many of them returned to Louisiana. Why?
Seriously, if you live in Louisiana, you should think about moving. I thought Florida would be the first state to fall into the sea, but maybe it’s gonna be Louisiana. California’s not too safe either, as one earthquake could make the whole state disappear. (If you’re a Lost fan, right now you’re thinking of that one scene when the whole island disappears into the water.)
Where should we live, you ask? Colorado, of course. We should all move to Colorado.
