same things could be asked any time a tornado hits the midwest or a wildfire breaks out in Colorado disasters happen and people wont change there ways until it hits too close to home but at that point its only a small fraction of collectors

No one can prepare for trees hitting there house, cutting it in half. For NY's tunnels to be closed because of water is unheard of, in what some people referred to it as "not a big deal." Has Florid dealt with worse? Yes. However, this is the most densely populated area in the country. Further, I am no electrician, but you can't prepare for power outages.
