Native America Calling: Ready when disaster strikes
Tuesday, September 7, 2021

Tribes in Louisiana are assessing damage, checking in with citizens and cleaning up their communities in the aftermath of Hurricane Ida. The Category 4 hurricane that swept through Gulf Coast states also cut power to millions of people.

In the Southwest, flash flooding turned fatal on the Hopi reservation.

When disaster strikes, tribes have to be ready to mobilize response teams, work with surrounding jurisdictions, render aid to community members and help the rebuilding process.

Native America Calling will check in with tribal emergency management experts about current disaster zones and how far emergency preparedness can go at home and in the community.
