Richland County Vulnerability Assessment

This project examined the spatial variation of historical hazard events and current socio-economic indicators in order to gain a better understanding of the current biophysical, social and overall place vulnerability in the county. Such an in depth study provides the information needed by emergency managers, planners and the general public in order to better prepare for hazard events in the future. (S.
