Thanks to an organization called the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes, Inc. (FLASH) and their contractor, Weather Predict Consulting Inc., we have the benefit of an excellent report on natural disasters with some recommendations re resilience. I especially like it because it presents a lot of hard scientific information about natural disasters and some useful observations re resilience, a topic that often sinks under the weight of platitudes and wishful thinking.
The 14 page report is titled: Impact 2011: Examining a Year of Catastrophes through the Lens of Resiliency. It is international in scope though the recommendations are meant for a U.S. audience.
