Coastal Storm Recovery

Coastal areas are subjected to a unique set of challenges when storms strike the shorelines. Recovery often includes debris removal from beaches and surf as well as replacing sand that has eroded from the beaches thus exposing houses and businesses and damaging infrastructure. When FEMA arrives on the site of a declared disaster in a coastal region, these are some of the initial steps taken to help restore the communities and natural habitats. - Location: Galveston, TX
