Re: “A Disaster Waiting to Happen

The same area SoCal has been affected by wild fires on more than one occasion (17 in the last 10 years). Why should fire fighter's lives be endangered and tax payer dollars wasted for people to stay in a hazardous area? Maybe Ill go build my house on a Volcano that erupts every 3 years or maybe a flood zone. Why should tax dollars be spent on people that build their homes under the sea? That's right New Orleans is built 12 feet below sea level. So where exactly is one, 100% safe from natural disasters? The fact is there is nowhere that is completely safe from natural disasters. However, if you are willing to live in an area that year after year experiences natural disasters you are at a minimum "living at your own expense". This choice to live in a hazardous area should be at the homeowners expense and not that of the U.S. taxpayer. Hurricane after Hurricane Wildfire after Wildfire, Earthquake etc..etc. When will people learn? And how many billions of dollars must we pay before they do?
