California's Coastline At Risk
The five-year, $4 million report by the Federal Emergency Management Agency says that losses to beachfront homes along California's coast will reach $110 million per year by the middle of the century. Unless new legislation is passed, property owners will not qualify for federal money to cover the damage. FEMA suggets extensive mapping to determine problem spots. Opponents say this is another good reason not to build on California's coast.
