Measuring disaster resilience: The impact of hurricane sandy on critical infrastructure systems

  title={Measuring disaster resilience: The impact of hurricane sandy on critical infrastructure systems},
  author={Tina Comes and Bartel Van de Walle},
Modern critical infrastructure (CI) systems are tightly coupled, resulting in unprecedented complexity and difficulty to predict, limit and control the consequences of disruptions caused by hazards. Therefore, a paradigm shift in disaster risk management is needed: instead of focusing on predicting events, resilience needs to be improved as a basis for adequate response to any event.
