Milestone 3 Section 1: The current mitigation plan for a hurricane varies based on the intensity but is basically evacuation. Section 2: The current mitigation plan that is in effect for New Orleans hurricanes is evacuation. The residents are notified by way of siren and public broadcast. Some shortcomings of the plan are that if some people aren’t educated in the different types of sirens that they might think it is a tornado siren and do the opposite of what they are supposed to. Section 3: I would propose that they still attempt to evacuate everybody but instead of doing it by siren have a committee of people who drive around weather vehicles that are omitting a public service announcement to the public in the three most popular languages in the city telling them to evacuate. My mitigation plan is an improvement because it would allow a higher percentage of the population to receive the message.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
