So you want to abandon our ports?Exactly. More to the point of the OP, why would we continue to use taxpayer money to rebuild those homes?Why would you buy a house in a flood prone area?Cool. I live in another area which makes the national news for flooding and home I have ever lived in has flooded. Even grandma knew to buy on the hill so to say.Not home...."homes" as in six of them.Cool, congratulations on picking your home well. Not everyone does. Let's buy out the ones that do flood, not yours.I really dont care what you believe.
I live here and know the score. As I said,I've lived near the reservoir for fifty years and have never been flooded.
Does the reservoir protect your home?
And not one flooded.
If I buy that nice cheap house in the bottomland will you raise your taxes to build me a better levee (forcing the next guy to do so also), and help rebuild my flooded house?
The port of Houston being the largest port in the U.S. in regards to foreign tonnage,second largest in the U.S. and tenth largest in the world.
