just like Katrina grew the population centers of many....I had a house on the market for almost a year after my divorce.....Kat sold my house....

I can't cite the actual number or percentage, but Kat was a boon for Hattiesburg.....that I can tell you....

an isle is destined to fail if in a tropical zone.....it's no different than building on coastlines in the same zone(s)....

that's just dayum common sense....

RE: Puerto Rico
Puerto Rico needs to transition into a resort, adventure, and agriculture destination. Even though the island is very mountainous, there is an abundant of agricultural land that can be utilized that isn't coastal.

With the reduction in population, Puerto Rico has the opportunity to bring in new money and revamp its identity.

Federal and state retirees looking for an island destination which they can use their medical insurance should be a tool to attract new money. Creating new hospitals near these resorts and watching them expand could be exactly what the island needs to recover.

If Puerto Ricans are going to move to the mainland, they will be moving towards family and friends. Think of the states and cities with the highest population of Puerto Ricans

With that in mind, think NYC and surrounding counties along with NJ, Philly, and Florida.

Right there are a lot of brown people on that island, clearly thats why time is derelict in helping them amiright... I mean he passed a disaster declaration six days ago and asked congress to get something on his desk to help them... But really he's just dragging his feet because $NonWhitePeople.

No tom, it's deliberately trying to sell a narrative despite the facts...

I'm reading today that it will take likely until mid-October to get the needed financial aid to PR. That seem timely to you?

How would you do it quicker? Should we just have airplanes fly over and dump dollar bills out the doors?

People have no concept how difficult it is to do even seemingly simple things when everything is destroyed.

Tom, the island is trashed. Giving them a debit card isn't going to help anything until all of the trash, and debris, and trees everywhere gets cleaned up. FEMA, National Guard, Coast Guard are getting ports open, food, water, cots, blankets, medicine, fuel/generators (to keep hospitals running) to the Island. Lots of stuff needs to be done before PR can use money to make an attempt to rebuild some of the infrastructure.

RE: Puerto Rico
What I read was not that it would not get there because of issues in PR itself, but rather issues in DC. To me, that's a problem. We shall see, hopefully it won't take that long.
