#hurricane Irma: Tampa

Views: 166
You may think that the most vulnerable city in United States to a hurricane is:
. . . . . . New Orleans, or
. . . . . . Houston, or
. . . . . . Miami.
But studies say Tampa tops them all.

Washington Post concluded that,
. . . “the area is due for a major hurricane, and is not prepared.
. . . If a big one scores a direct hit, the damage would likely surpass Katrina.”

This is a storm with upwards of
. . . $200 billion damage, quite separate from any injuries,
. . . or fatalities the storm causes.
A 2015 study by MIT,
. . . pointed out that global warming is dramatically increasing,
. . . the chance of this storm happening by century’s end.

Another reason the city is so unprepared, the Washington Post notes,
. . . is the pervasive climate science denial,
. . . among state leaders like Gov. Rick Scott ®.
