Resilience Index – an indicator of recovery potential

In a recent posting by Phil Palen, one of the authors the blog HLSWatch, he attached a copy of a Resilience Index for Plaquemines  I found that graphic quite compelling and think it could be considered an interesting way to predict how well t a community is likely to fare during recovery.

This community is unusual — both in terms of its extreme vulnerability as well as the amount of  federal funding and governmental attention it has received in recent years.  Note that the parish has a recovery plan in place, which is both unusual and commendable.
