This is my problem with "disaster" relief
ALL homeowners/renters subsidize this, so that a FEW owners can make money renting out houses on the beach, or in fire-prone mountains. ALL businesses subsidize this, so that a FEW owners can make money from dangerous locations. Most of these disasters are entirely foreseeable, and ought to be built in to the cost of doing business. NYC is not some poverty-stricken third-world place. For decades they've gambled that preparation wasn't necessary. They took their money and spent it on other stuff. Now their foolishness is exposed, and everyone else is expected to pay. BZZZT!!!! Wrong! And the same for the Gulf, and the Atlantic barrier islands, and cities along the Mississippi, etc. etc. etc.
