As Hurricane Sandy created massive damage across North Carolina, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and Rode Island; some pundits were touting how this would be good for the economy. Repairing infrastructure and homes would put many people back to work and boost the economy. Wouldn’t it?

When Storms “Hype” Exceeds the Event

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

We all have experienced an occasion where the TV goes on and on how bad a storm will be. We are warned about massive snowfall, that floodwater will carry everything away or the wind will take off our homes roof.  At times, the event is everything promised, like Hurricane Sandy. At other times the danger seems to fizzle, creating cries of “Too much hype” from some. Some seem almost disappointed the worst didn’t happen.

As the storm passed residents start taking stock of lessons learned. We need to understand, and learn from the mistakes, and successes of others. Some lessons were universal we can use for improving our plans.
