Coastal residents on the Southeast and Southwest Gulf Coast feel they are more vulnerable to damage from a hurricane, tornado or flooding than do residents farther north, according to a recent poll released Tuesday.
The poll, conducted by Mason-Dixon Polling and Research, showed that nearly 58 percent of residents from Texas to North Carolina feel vulnerable, compared with 30 percent of those farther north.
