VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
And once again the media idiots pretend New Orleans was hit by hurricane Katrina..... which did little damage in Louisiana other than to the Venice area. The damn storm hit MISSISSIPPI. NOT Louisiana. Just because a little storm surge (Alabama had a higher surge than New Orleans did) caused a poorly maintained levee to break does NOT mean anything other than that when they build levees to keep Lake New Orleans dry, they need to build them better.
And stop lying about where the damn storm hit! entire towns (Waveland, etc) were wiped out in Mississippi. But the media want to concentrate on a bunch of idiots living below sea level. Sigh.
New Jersey #1 is a complete joke.
The article is about RISK, not what recent anomaly occurred. Florida is at the highest risk for tropical storm damage and if you take out Sandy then it is clear that New Jersey is a low RISK state. They might as well say Montana is at the greatest risk because of what Yellowstone did millions of years ago.
While risk is based on what has previously occurred, it is a statistic based on the possibility of the same occurring again, and New Jersey fails on the future test.
