Dar Magazine | ResilientSEE: A Framework to Achieve Resilience Accross Scales


The worst of Hurricane Maria was not the atmospheric event itself, but the aftermath. Poor infrastructure, unsafe construction practices, and lack of an emergency plan made Maria the deadliest natural disaster in the history of the United States, with deaths estimated at over 4,000. For months, people did not have access to clean water, food, or medicine. Roofs were blown away, homes were completely submerged, and diseases like leptospirosis and depression skyrocketed across the island. To date, the destruction is still evident, and while recovery efforts have gone a long way, Puerto Rico is not yet ready to withstand another major natural disaster
