Coal,

When you love where you live, you live with it.  We have seen parts of Malibu flood over and over when we have torrential rains.  However, people do not leave, the same thing is true of the fires.  Of course, there are those who do, but the numbers are not high.  A

No. Floods and high water happen, and people just clean up and deal with it, and stay put.

Living and doing real estate in Wisconsin, I don't believe our market changed because of Hurricane Matthew ... but I'm sure people living anywhere near by Florida must be taking that into consideration.

Couldn't say as it wasn't an issue here. But when we have wild fires it is not uncommon for some people to move, but many others rebuild in the same place. And people buy in high risk fire zones

    Also, Matthew was NOT that large of a storm.  The news media made a big deal out of it, to claim it has to do with the Climate Change [hoax].

We had many people leave after the hurricanes of 2004 and 2005.  Of those, I estimate that over 50% have returned.  Not sure if they will leave again after Matthew.

Yes.

Too often they leave Florida and move to NC. Seeing the mistake they made they move again to Ohio only to return when they see 55 on their birthday cake.

I had a couple from the Boston area that was planning to move down and now decided not to. The news they got was not just about Matthew but all the past hurricanes we had in the past 10-15 years. I think they are going to start looking in the Carolinas now.

Thank you for all the feedback.  It looks like some people do move after the storms but not in large groups.  I would hope that people know what kind of weather situations they are getting themselves into when they buy a house in another state, ANY STATE!
