  • Product Description

Scientists predict an eruption and collapse of the Cumbre Vieja volcano. A single tsunami created by such event could threaten the sustainability of the city of Miami, Florida. Given the endless events that have proven nature''s ability to damage urban centers, there is no alternative but to design effective evacuation plans against these threats. In the past, U.S. cities such as New Orleans were not adequately prepared for natural disasters. The fact that New Orleans'' levees required immediate maintenance was well-known, yet U.S. government officials opted to withhold the necessary funds. Following Hurricane Katrina, planners were assigned the task of rebuilding a city that by then seemed foreign to them. A potential tsunami lasting a short period of time could be deadlier than the relatively longer-lived Hurricane Katrina.
