impact of hurricanes on society

Postby izhan » Tue Jan 13, 2009 7:48 am

Hey there!!! Im a student from Singapore, south east asia. Im doing a research on the impact of hurricanes on society. My country has never encountered any hurricanes nor tropical storm, thus my knowledge on hurricanes are limited.

Could anyone out there help me out?
Here are some questions i would like to ask:
1- How does hurricanes or tropical storms affect society, financially, emotionally etc?
2- What are the preparations made to survive these hurricanes?

That's all guys. Really appreciate it if someone could reply. Thanks!!=D

Google Hurricane Ike, then follow any links related to the Houston / Galveston area.
After a few minutes of reading, you'd be amazed to discover that after nearly a year
most of us still haven't recovered.

Similar things happened in South Florida after Andrew. And the west coast of Florida after Wilma/Ivan etc.

While you may get the basics back relatively quickly, full recovery takes much longer. :-)

I also would like to know if there is any article/news that are related to it so that we can find more information?

Thanks in advance.

Not that I am aware of, but maybe someone else is.

Nothing against the Associated Press (AP) but they are having serious trouble in getting the basic facts right.
