48. Here's Why You Need to Prepare for a Hurricane

Resilience expert Aris Papadopoulos was part of putting together a report on what the recovery was like for victims of Hurricane Michael in the Florida panhandle in 2018. The results will make you realize why we all need to do more to prevent this damage.

Here are some important moments with Aris from the podcast: 

At 5:54 What is the primary problem you have identified, and what are you doing to make it better?

At 11:23 Why do you think we aren’t rebuilding to a standard that would survive another
category 5 hurricane in the Florida panhandle?

At 17:43 What are some problems that people in Mexico Beach faced that we might not have heard much about?
