On this episode we bring you a blast from the past. As I mentioned last week, the Disaster Podcast team is either all traveling, working, or in the process of moving and we struggled to get together for a new episode, let alone two for last week and this one. So we will bring you an episode of relevant content from the past 7 years on the show.
We got a lot of response from our recent episode with Daniel Zehner from the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI) on Hurricane Dorian and construction resilience in the face of powerful storms like that. In light of that, here’s the very first episode we did with Daniel about the NHERI program and research that you might find very interesting. Enjoy!
Daniel Zehner from the DesignSafe Radio podcast joins us on the Disaster Podcast this week. He highlights the research opportunities at NHERI for the major hazard areas they look into: wind, earthquakes, tsunami, coastal erosion, and rapid response after events. His podcast program focuses on the important work of the team at the Natural Hazards Engineering Research Infrastructure (NHERI). NHERI is committed to making sure the next natural hazard doesn’t have to be a disaster for you and your family.
