2017 Hurricane Season: Recommendations for a Resilient Path Forward for the Marine Transportation System [open pdf - 3MB]
"In October 2017, the Coordinating Board of the U.S. Committee on the Marine Transportation System (CMTS) tasked the Marine Transportation System Resilience Integrated Action Team (RIAT) to identify the impacts, best practices, and lessons learned from the 2017 hurricane season. The RIAT is a consortium of Federal agencies that manage, operate, or are stakeholders in the Marine Transportation System (MTS) and have interest in increasing the resilience of the MTS to prepare, respond, recover, and adapt to disruption. To fulfill this request, the RIAT convened the 12 member agencies to discuss some of the challenges, successes, best practices, and recommendations for increasing resilience based upon reported experiences of responding and recovering to three major hurricanes that made landfall in the United States and U.S. territories: Harvey, Irma, and Maria between August and October of 2017. In order to gather this information, the RIAT held interagency data calls and hosted a workshop at the Department of Transportation in May 2018."
