Major Disasters in Texas
Using the Declared Disasters by year or state date found on the FEMA Web site (https://www.fema.gov/disasters), investigate the ten (10) most recently declared disasters in my home state of TEXAS. Provide an overview of the ten (10) most recent incidents by categorizing them into human action or natural disaster incidents. Select two incidents, one human action and one natural disaster, and compare them.
In your evaluation of the incidents,
• Analyze the responses to the two incidents and evaluate whether the incident determined the response.
• Evaluate the coordination between interagency and intergovernmental agencies.
These are just a few that I remember:
Hurricane Harvey – August 2017
Central Texas Flood – Memorial Day, 2015
Bastrop County Fire – 2011
Hurricane Ike – 2008
Hurricane Rita – 2005
