Recommendation to Mitigate Future Hurricane and Flood Damage

Record #:
Hurricane Floyd, and the subsequent flooding, took 52 lives, destroyed 8,000 homes, and damaged 67,000 more. The havoc was unprecedented in the state's history. How can the state be prepared for the next disaster? Among the recommendations made by the North Carolina Center for Public Policy Research are remapping the floodplains and keeping them up-to-date and, following Florida's example, creating an Emergency Management Trust Fund.
