Hurricane Forecast: Less Funding, More Work for Local Officials


Author(s):
Abstract:
Hurricanes striking North Carolina have not devastated large population centers as Hurricane Katrina did in New Orleans. Still, the state has had its share of disasters from Fran, Floyd, Bonnie, Dennis, and Isabel. Katrina exposed serious deficiencies in hurricane response at the Federal level. This in turn places more responsibility on county and state emergency managers. Secret discusses what needs to be done and what state and local officials are doing to stay ahead of the coming storms.
