    Alarming Photos Of Florida Beach Erosion Via Hurricane Noel

    Fort Lauderdale beach in places is currently...missing. As the weather settles after Hurricane Noel, things should get back to normal here.


    Yet further to the north, folk are somewhat worried. Here's why...

    The four pics grouped together are from Palm Beach County, immediately north of Broward (Ft. Lauderdale). The area was badly effected by the storm surge. With good reason, many are worried if another storm comes along this season. It need not even come inland, as Noel merely drifted by, miles out to sea.

    None of it. It was beachfront property.

    I don't understand why people rebuild on beachfront property after repeated hurricanes. It's the same way here in Missouri when people rebuild their house next to the river after they were just helicoptered from their last one.

    It seems stupid to build property somewhere that is constantly adding/eroding due to weather. It's not like that beach/river was in the exact same place for the last 200 years--it's always changing.
    CNN may think my opinion matters, but you shouldn't.
