about

   Have you experienced a natural or man-made disaster? What was it like, in those first few hours, as you met neighbors you may not have spoken with in ages, as you clustered around the scene of tragedy or destruction and tried to figure out what you would do for food or water or shelter, just to survive. Or maybe you evacuated, heeding the warnings of officials, and had to return home, with your heart in your throat as you approached your home, not knowing if it still stood or had become part of that debris field you have just driven through...

   There are many *official* responses to disaster, FEMA in particular, but other governmental and volunteer agencies as well. I’ve worked with them all. Yet the real healing following any event, large or small, happens when neighbors reach out to help one another. The stories in In the Wake of Disaster illustrate this and range from *the big ones*; Ivan, Katrina, and Sandy, through two tornados in Arkansas and Alabama, and even overseas, to Haiti after Hannah and Burma after Cyclone Nargis, both in 2008.
