Recovery Advisories

FEMA building scientists have created a new series of Recovery advisories to show homeowners, contractors, builders and others techniques to make structures more wind and flood resistant.

Damage to structures from hurricanes Maria and Irma could have been prevented or significantly reduced with different construction techniques. Applying the lessons and ideas in these advisories can help people and communities be better prepared for the next hurricanes, able to recover faster and at less expense.
