    The Council of Nautical Archaeology of the Puerto Rico Institute of Culture and members of the U.S. National Park Service inspect the historic fort (built in 1609) that was impacted by Hurricane María on September 20, 2017. Damages due to weather and human intervention were present prior to the hurricane, however they increased dramatically after the hurricane made landfall. Congress passed a law that orders a team to send qualified arcaeologists and structural engineers to assess and structure a plan for historical buildings on the island as part of the natural and cultural resources projects. The archaeologists assess visible cracks, debris, the conditions of the historical material used and the sources of each visible damage.

  5. Brock Long Baton Rouge Cut 4

    2017 taught us that preparedness is everybody’s responsibility. Mean time citizens find themselves whether it’s a flood or active shooter event or a hurricane, that they are going to find themselves to be in a position where they are the true first responder and that they are going to be called to take action until the official first responders can arrive.

    So how do you assess your risk, go download the FEMA App, go to ready.gov to assess your risk, understand how to mitigate your home and we are also asking people to take consideration on how to be financially ready. Disasters and evacuations can be expensive, kick starting recovery can be expensive and you may have to cover some costs until FEMA assistance or other forms of assistance can be made available after a disaster. We are also asking people to cover the gap in insurance. Insurance is the first line of defense whether you are a homeowner or business owner or elected official over public infrastructure
