A good example of how to retrofit buildings and improve the quality of life in the wake of a natural disaster is Greensburg, Kansas. When the Tornado wiped out the town in 2007, the government (local, state, and national) came together and rebuilt the town smartly. They installed solar panels, wind farms, and built new structures to withstand tornado-strength winds from destructive weather systems. The town is much better prepared should another disaster strike the town. Seeing articles like this one, http://texasstormwatch.com/2018/10/numerous-tornado-reports-from-tuesdays-system.html , makes me more motivated than ever!
