My home was built in the mid 70s, nice lots and alleys. All utilities are buried in the alley. My son's home was built in the 90s, small lots and no alleys. All utilities are buried under the street. I would think that there would be more effort to bury electric lines to protect them from ice, falling trees and hurricanes. It would seem like the emergency relief money should have covered it, but that is you and me. All homeowners in the affected area should share the cost, maybe be prorated. Homeowners well away from the beach shouldn't have to pay increased rates if the electric co. raises the poles. Should people even be allowed to rebuild in dangerous flood prone areas. Is the sea rising??
