ABSTRACT

Hurricane Mitigation: A Handbook for Public Facilities   [open pdf - 2MB]

"A key strategy in improving delivery of disaster assistance is to reduce the vulnerability of public infrastructure to damages from disaster events such as hurricanes. This Hurricane Hazard Mitigation Handbook for Public Facilities (Handbook) assists local jurisdictions affected by hurricanes by suggesting mitigation measures that reduce their vulnerability to hurricane forces including storm surges, high winds, and torrential rains. The mitigation measures in this Handbook are provided to help identify potential ideas that local jurisdictions can implement during post-disaster repair and/or rebuilding to reduce future damages."
