Preventing Natural Hazards from Becoming Societal Disasters

We may not be able to prevent hurricanes from occurring, but we can improve our ability to predict them, move people out of harm's way, respond quickly to their aftermath and build our homes and infrastructure in a way that can survive the worst nature can throw at us. DesignSafe is helping to do so.
