The problem is, even after the last few years, people are complacent. Especially if they havent been affected. Charley was a Cat 3 i think at landfall but by the time it got to us here in Daytona it was barely a Cat 1. We had a significant amount of damage to trees, power lines hotels on the beachside and power was out most places for at least 7 days. People here say aw, its only a TS or its only a Cat 1. They forget very easily. Then you have people who havent been directly hit at all and the complacentcy really sets in. I was hoping after Katrina last year this would change. I guess we will see after this year.
