|Coastal Disasters Affect All Our Resources|
|Monday, 12 March 2012 12:21|
The current issue of Coastal Heritage presents several articles on the impacts of disasters on the waters around South Carolina. However, these are not your usual summaries of the effects on coastal waters and wildlife in and out of those waters, which is what we would expect from the Sea Grant Consortium, which supports research, education, and outreach to conserve coastal resources . Rather, the articles are the accounts of individuals enduring and slowly recovering from those disasters. Coastal disasters can claim homes, parents, security and can leave behind debt, homelessness, and unemployment. And the scars and memories can remain, particularly in those who were young when the event occurred.
