Community Resiliency

USF Professor Robin Ersling studies the social impacts of disasters like Hurricane Irma. We talk with her on University Beat on WUSF Public Media about how communities can fill the roles governments can’t, why it seems it takes impoverished neighborhoods and communities longer to recover from a disaster, and how people can work together before a disaster to make recovery after it quicker.
