Natural disasters are often unpredictable and can leave behind chaos in their aftermath. This summer, a pair of category 4 hurricanes have left severe damage in their wake, with Hurricane Fiona causing a total blackout in Puerto Rico and, shortly after, Hurricane Ian causing major destruction in Florida. Here, we highlight MHTTC training and technical assistance products and resources related to navigating the aftermath of a natural disaster, as well as a compilation of resources from other reputable organizations.
