    Yup. And I'm no more enamored of people (re)building in high-fire-risk areas than you are of people (re)building in high-flood-risk areas. That said, I would note that having a fire this year makes a fire next year quite a bit less likely...the same cannot be said of floods.

    One reason that earthquakes kill more people than hurricanes might be that, hurricanes are predicted usually a week ahead of time giving the people time to evacuate. Hurricanes victims many times have little warning. Many of the deaths in hurricanes could be avoided. I live in NC, and thankfully Flo is almost gone.
