I've often thought that insurance should pay to replace your hurricane
destroyed house at a new safer location, paid for by the insurance
company, but if rebuilt at the same location, insurance would no
longer be offered beyond the single rebuild. Then donate the old
property to a land trust that won't build there again. This would
slowly move real estate out of the problem areas.
Is there a big downside to this plan? Other than the obvious that
people want to keep living in the same stupid places.

But on the contrary, 2023 has been a far stormier year in the Atlantic. But a tropical west to east wind current pushed the hurricanes to the north, where they blew themselves out in the middle of the Atlantic where no one cares, even if it is a monster storm such as Lee, which raged for 11 days but never came close enough to land to wreck anything of importance or sell headlines.
