A Quick Response Report from the Hazards Center at Univ. of CO/Boulder. See Gathering Places During the Short Term Recovery Following H. Harvey.
The most recent research from the Quick Response Grant Program looked at three communities on the south coast of Texas a month after Hurricane Harvey struck. They found that while there were ample opportunities to gather together and for many reasons, these locations—at least in the short term—didn’t always provide a sense of community for those who met there.
