Recently, Lori Peek was interviewed on CU's Brain Waves podcast focusing on natural disasters. She discussed the increase of frequency and intensity of natural hazard events that have been happening in more recent history. Give a listen to what Lori had to say about this and also the vulnerable populations who are more affected by natural disasters. Lori's interview is a great overview of what the Natural Hazards Center has been studying and she also highlights practical lessons learned for responding to natural disasters.
The podcast finishes with other interviews about how to gather better information about tornados in order to create better warning systems and how men and women respond differently to natural disasters – also well worth the listen!
