Archival Gold: FEMA Photo Library
It’s been a while since I did a photo resource post, and in light of the recent swarm of tornadoes and damaging storms, I though the FEMA Photo Library would be appropriate to highlight. The collection of photos on FEMA’s website does a great job of showing the human side of natural disasters – something that’s just as important to think about as the scientific side of hazard management and mitigation. The “Photo Collections” link doesn’t have many groups of photos yet, but a search on a particular hazard – floods, earthquakes, landslides, even eruptions – will turn up hundreds of photos, many recent (there are photos from last week’s tornadoes in the Midwest, for example).
