So you mean all costal residence can stay where they are since even Florida averages being hit in the same place less than once a year.

Now if you can find me a job in Austin, Texas with the same income and cost of living I have now. I'd be willing to move.

Oh, if you want view storm history and costal population you may want to visit the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration website. Historical Hurricane Tracks covers storms from 1851 to 2007.According to this data and adding Ike to it 9 Category 2 or above storm have hit within 65 nautical miles of where I live since 1900. 1900, 1909, 1915, 1932, 1945, 1949, 1961, 1983 and 2008 and only one of them was Category 5 storm. Hardly bi-annual if my math is correct.
