The National Academy of Sciences just released a major report that has been in preparation for at least two years. The lead author, Prof. Susan Cutter, talked about the forthcoming report at the annual hazards conference in Colorado last month, but she could not reveal the recommendations at that time.

The one page press release, issued  August 1, is here.  The full text report ( 250 pp.) and the Exec. Summary (15 pp.) can be found here.

The Diva has not yet had time to read and reflect on it, but comments may be forthcoming soon.
