I get upset when gov't programs keep expanding to provide protection for things that don't deserve to be covered.

Yes, I've noticed, you get upset. I think you missed the point, however: the earlier situation was not a barrier island, it was part of Ohio, which had been hit by tornados. The population was conservative, Republican representative, making the same kind of argument you are making. But when the tornados hit, they were demanding government aid. They did *not* tell the government to go away. Pretty typical response, if you ask me.
