Now downtown Miami is flooded and the Keys have been slammed hard. The Miami housing market has cooled in recent years, but new luxury condo towers are still under construction as the downtown and Brickell neighborhoods have emerged as hot spots, particularly for younger people who have never dealt with a major hurricane.

Castor was raised in Miami, and Mastropaolo said she weathered Sandy and other storms on Long Island.
