  • No. Unfortunately, that's the price you pay for wanting to live so close to the water. I think if people who live in those zones want to pool their money together and build them, so be it. But my tax dollars shouldn't go for that. I know it sounds mean but look at New Orleans. You live in a city that is under sea level and sits right on a large body of water. Why would you think that it wouldn't flood?

      Even the residents would know better than that!!

      And yet they still do it.
  • Underground shelters in flood-prone areas? Do you want everyone in these areas to drown? I guess that'd solve the problem, although not in the most humane way. How about glass tornado shelters out in Kansas, too?

      HAHAHAHA! SO TRUE!

      It can be build on high ground away from flood-prone areas, hydraulic pumps can also prevent flood. last of all flood barrier can be build in flood- prone areas.

      "It can be build on high ground away from flood-prone areas, hydraulic pumps can also prevent flood. last of all flood barrier can be build in flood- prone areas." If they make it to high ground, what's the point in the shelter, then?! They might as well just park a bunch of submarines on the beaches just in case. It'd be cheaper and more effective than trying to build underground shelters hundreds of miles away from affected areas.
  • No. They have early warning systems for evacuation. And putting people underground with tons of water on the way is a very stupid idea! Why not just drown them yourself? Or put them on a sinking ship? Where did you think the water would go? Up the mountain?
  • If only Puerto Ricans thought of that idea first. lol
  • Nope. Don't be silly. Underground shelters are a death trap if built in cities and potential heavy damage areas. Which is why governments nuclear and other disaster proof bunkers are built way out of such areas.
