From the DISASTR-OUTREACH-LIB email discussion list:
As hurricane season continues, Hurricane Harvey recovery is overlapping with Hurricanes Irma, Jose and Katia. Meanwhile, wildfires are raging in the northwest US, and an earthquake struck Mexico this morning.
Now is a good time to focus on the Preparedness Month theme: Disasters don’t plan ahead. You can.
