Thank you for this indeed. I think it's strata, now there is Irma and the 
Atlanta/Caribbean/Florida; I fear this more. In 1972 Hurricane Agnes 
brought misery to my hometown/parents, I was in Halifax at the time. The 
Susquehanna rose from 1 meter to more than 13 meters overnight; Wyoming 
Valley in PA. was flooded, to great depths, houses and businesses in parts 
completely submerged. In Houston at least unlike Rockport, it seems a 
question of 1st floor flooding, there's something left maybe to build on? 
Florida is frightening, we were there after Andrew and saw the results of 
Andrew's devastation, far worse w/ the winds, and now this. But the strata 
is always there; Wyoming V. has been hit with 90 floods since 1780 or so - 
and people keep rebuilding in the same spot. Stay warm and safe in 
Frankfurt (where my father's family is from btw) and stay in touch and 
thank you for your reply!
