I write this blog to call attention to the long-term recovery process after disasters. It’s my attempt to provide informal educational resources that may be useful for both researchers and practitioners.
I share the sentiment from this Ken Burns quote:
The great arrogance of the present is to forget the intelligence of the past.
The postings provide information about current disaster events and also disaster recovery news (such as newly released reports from government agencies), with comments, opinions, and an occasional burst of outrage.
