the erosion is astonishing

the structures seem salvageable, or at least many of the materials reusable

it’s a relief to see the mitigation possibilities

yes, that the buildings remained square, really, it’s just that they were undercut.

being able to jack them up and moving them more inland is great mitigation for the restoration work

This type of disaster recovery was part of my former profession, but I never had to manage a project on this scale.

you know, there’s something really funny about emergency preparedness, you end up almost wishing for disasters to happen just to put your training into practice.

i guess this is why the media is as it is, that whole it bleeds it leads, they deal in misery too much and they lose perspective and what the real world meaning is……

the danger of being a specialist over a generalist, I suppose.
