Session Name: Utilities~~Tropical Storm/Hurricane Impact on Island Infrastructure
Tropical Islands can be a paradise, but due to their unique remote locations, they, like any other coastal land mass, are vulnerable to the destructive damage of tropical storms and hurricanes. We will discuss the unique challenges faced when a tropical storm or hurricane impacts an island’s utility infrastructure – electric, communications, water supply and wastewater treatment. Challenges in getting utility employees and first responders in place, coordinating mutual assistance and logistics issues associated with the material supply chain.
