Hurricanes are good.
The best places to live are the most vulnerable,
have the highest property values and rents and views.
Hurricanes get rid of old construction so any place you pick will be new.
Check recent hurricane list and pick a place that got hit recently.
News media show hurricane damage to scare away idiots and cowards.
The best people will then have the best beach areas all to themselves.
Hurricanes pose no danger.
You can see hurricanes coming days or weeks ahead so can drive inland easily to avoid it.
Probability of apartment getting hit far less than 1%, even much less,
and even then insurance covers it so you get to buy something better newer.
Probability of dying from living in a worse area is 99%.
Should never waste time thinking about anything with such tiny probability that can be easily avoided anyway.
Plenty of real problems everywhere 99.9999% of the time to worry about.
Many of those problems can be solved by moving to the right beach.

The Gulf coast and areas within 50 plus miles are vulnerable.
I saw all the damaged areas. It was very bad.

The fall/winter would be nice then migrate to cooler/dryer areas for the hot humid months.
Northern NM or Colorado, WY, Idaho, Oregon, WA, etc.

spend remaining good years in Florida or some sunny beach area.
