Part proceedings and part systematic study, this book examines the magnitude of the Floyd disaster, especially in regard to the state's level of preparedness and the effectiveness of its response. Reconditions for improved preparedness are included. Social, environmental, and economic impacts are all considered. The human side of the disaster is also represented; personal essays by those effected by the flood are interspersed throughout. No index.
