Hurricanes and development

In today's paper, Tom Palmer's environmental column is about the recently published book, Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams: A Social History of Modern Florida.  A proverb is quoted from the book: Hurricanes are nature's way of making Floridians learn geography.  Sounds like an interesting book.

Do u think Florida is better prepared than the lower Gulf States? Or was this storm so much worse than Florida has seen in a while?
