More than 80 major storms have threatened Delaware’s coast over the past three decades, putting lives and property at risk. The resource guides residents on practical measures that can keep them safe and minimize damage to homes and property.
To help reduce Delaware communities’ vulnerability to coastal hazards, the Delaware Sea Grant College Program, University of Delaware’s Coastal Community Enhancement Initiative, and Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control have cooperated with the Delaware Emergency Management Agency to increase awareness of coastal hazards and provide communities information and resources that will improve societal, economic and personal resiliency to coastal hazards.
