Living on the coast is risky business,
but it's a hazard we can't avoid.
Dr. John Jacob, Texas Sea Grant's Coastal Community Development
Specialist, recalls the clamor in 2005 after Hurricane Katrina hit New
Orleans - mostly from people in other parts of the country - to
abandon the coast.
"Coasts are an inherently hazardous place, there's no question
about that, but there's no choice about being there," Jacob says. "It's
the interface, it's where commerce happens, and it's just part of who
humans are - we're always going to be on the coast, whether it's for
commerce or recreation. People like the coast."
