kinda irconic, don't you think?
Come on people, you don't have to be Nostradomus (by the way, whose predictions and "visions" were extremely vague) to predict that a hurricane will decimate a city between a lake and the Gulf of Mexico that is 6 1/2 feet below sea level on average. Am I the only one that saw this coming? Of course I didn't know when it was going to hit, but come on...It's only a matter of time before this happens to Miami (again) Jacksonville, Tampa, Panama City Beach, Mobile, Galveston, etc.
Common sense obviously owns everyone who decided that they were safe in a city that was below sea level.
the funny thing is... the dutch have been building cities lower than sea level for hundreds of years... And they dont have this problem.
But then again, they dont just put up a 10 foot wall, throw in some well pumps, and say "okay we're safe"... They have multiple walls, all kinds of breakaway stations, and many more safety precautions then NO had.
Yeah, and usually the Dutch don't have category 5 hurricanes to worry about.
The dutch also do it as a means of national survival. If they sink, no more Holland. They would have to move to another country - Not another town.
[Dave Chappelle] Damn, they fucked up. [/Dave Chappelle]
