Storm Surge: How States Will Have to Step Up As Disasters Become More Frequent and Expensive

Read the full series in Stateline. The two parts currently available are:

Part Two: Using Special Nails to Save Roofs — and Dollars
More states are encouraging residents to build stronger homes now to minimize disaster costs in the future.
