The Christian Science Monitor published a promising article on Feb. 10, with the title: Blizzard 2013 storm prep sharpened by experience in Katrina and Sandy. The article noted that:
Since Hurricane Katrina in 2005, American storm response has changed dramatically. The blizzard that swept across nine states in the Northeast US this weekend in many ways showed how.
The author ( a staff writer) makes a number of generalizations about learning from past disasters, but cites no sources or specific reasons. I would not call this great journalism and certainly not competent scholarship. The topic is one that I hope some more skillful researchers and writers will tackle.
