Abstract: Planning for hurricane emergencies has focused upon the period immediately before and after the storm's arrival, emphasizing evacuation and disaster relief. Mitigation of hurricane impacts has used chiefly building code improvements and some limited growth management. Increasingly sophisticated modeling and improved data can help us protect probable hurricane impacts, which can be integrated into community plans.
