The Storm After the Storm

Tuesday, February 05, 2019

A report, The Storm after the Storm, issued by Disability Rights North Carolina, provides strong evidence that federal, state and local emergency management officials must take action to ensure the well-being of people with disabilities during natural disasters.

Analyzing the response to Hurricane Florence, the report shows how public officials must do more to include the voices of people with disabilities and disability rights advocates as they plan for future emergencies and ensure their safety.
