Analysts are projecting as much as $30 billion in losses due to the storm. In what looks like a best case scenario, Florence eventually could strike as merely a Category 1 hurricane with winds less than 100 mph, but that’s still enough to cause at least $1 billion in damage, Weather Underground meteorology director Jeff Masters said.

Rainfall could range between 20 inches to a staggering 40 inches. Between the rains and the storm surge, the flooding could be "catastrophic," the Washington Post warned.

If massive hurricanes every year are going to be the new normal in that area it doesn't seem very viable spending the money to rebuild after a place gets demolished. It couldn't take more than a few years of massive losses before insurance companies stop covering people in the hurricane areas.
