I think that the US needs a better disaster plan. The US spends lots of money and I think if they found a different way to help out they wouldn't spend so much on them.

I think this is true because as many hurricanes we get in a year, we should be more prepared because they are so common. And not just hurricanes. Things like tornadoes, fires, and floods should be better prevented because of all the technology we have now.

The U.S. does have somewhat of a good disaster plan but it needs a better one. These natural disasters are getting worse and worse as time goes on.

Jan 21, 2013 - Our world 2.0

Based on debate in the United States about Hurricane Sandy and in Doha about climate change victims, this is an increasingly pressing question....

The frequency and cost of natural disasters is rapidly increasing. Since the 1980s the number of billion dollar natural disasters on average each year in the United States has tripled from two to six. In 2011 there were 14 separate US$1 billion plus weather events and losses topped $60 billion. This year Hurricane Sandy alone will exceed that total.
