What to Do Before, During and After a Natural Disaster When disasters strike, they often hit hardest on historic buildings and landscapes. Hurricanes blow off roofs and uproot ancient trees. Earthquakes tear apart Victorian Main Streets. Floods wash away irreplaceable furnishings and artwork. But simple planning steps can make a difference. In this practical guide, the National Trust shows how everyone who cares for our past can prepare for, respond to and recover from the next natural disaster.Nelson, Carl L. is the author of 'Protecting the Past from Natural Disasters - Carl L.
