Summary
Abstract: Mitigation is superior to post-disaster response in reducing the billions of
dollars in losses resulting from U.S. natural disasters, and information that
predicts the varying likelihood of geologic hazards can help public agencies
improves the necessary decision making on land use and zoning. Accordingly,
this map was created to increase the resistance of one urban area, metropolitan
