Hurricanes occur with increasing frequency, requiring planning and preparedness. Most people focus on individual responses – how will family and friends remain safe, how will the house be protected, what will happen if food and water are in limited supply. With support from the College of Liberal Arts, Peace & War Center, and University Honors Program, a group of twelve Norwich students traveled to Boston to focus on the Hurricane Peter scenario. The Boston Policy Excursion challenged their thinking beyond the individual impacts of a hurricane to address disaster preparedness and response more broadly.
