This is Part 2 of a 3-part series titled How to Avoid the Negative Economic Impacts of a Natural Disaster.
With the month of June comes the onset of Hurricane Season. This series will help you be economically stronger and more resilient through the before and after phase of a natural disaster.
This webinar recording shares how varying factors can affect the severity of hurricane impacts on buildings, including how wind-driven rain and flooding inflict storm damage to historic buildings; emergency stabilization of buildings; proper methods to safely dry a building; how historic materials may be better at withstanding storms; the preservation of those historic materials; and how to make historic buildings more resilient to high wind and flood events – including elevating them.
