|Following catastrophic floods in 2008, Cedar Rapids/Linn County has come back stronger and is continuing its efforts to become more prepared and build resilience to future flood events and other hazards. ||Charleston, a vibrant, historic city, is addressing persistent flooding events, storm surge, and hurricanes and their impacts on critical infrastructure and infrastructure systems. ||Some of the issues Seattle is focusing on include climate adaptation, equity, and rapid economic growth. Among the natural hazards it faces are earthquakes, volcanoes, and landslides.||Tulsa, OK is our newest pilot community! Two key areas we will focus on are economic supply chains and building capacity in disaster preparedness in diverse community organizations.|
