“Disaster Story: Things I Learned From Hurricane Katrina” tells stories (on a very personal level) of what people had to endure following Hurricane Katrina. Unless you’ve experienced a disaster you cannot begin to know about emergency survival and what to expect. As a Hurricane Betsy and Katrina survivor the author shares many perspectives on the aftermath of a major disaster. When almost every “system” in a city is destroyed almost overnight, emergency preparedness teams can be completely overwhelmed and inadequate. Here is some of what you’ll learn: – Why no one expects a disaster to happen to them. – What you need to know in advance to stay in touch with family even when communications are down. How to return and have housing before most people. – What to expect immediately after a man made or natural disaster and for short and long-term recovery. The mistakes of Hurricane Katrina taught valuable lessons about disaster relief. Let’s learn from “Disaster Story: Things I Learned From Hurricane Katrina” and avoid unnecessary suffering in future disasters. This book can help anyone who needs it now or future victims who need to understand the complexities of disaster survival, rescue and recovery.
