Living by the water is an ideal part of the American dream for most people; who wouldn’t want a cool ocean breeze and the sound of the crashing waves to greet them every morning? The U.S. hub for this coastal paradise is Florida, and the statistics prove this way of life isn’t fading away. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the “Miami-Fort Lauderdale-West Palm Beach area added approximately 181,000 residents to the 100-year floodplain over the period ending in 2016, the most of any region nationally, followed by Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater.”
