Typ des Eintrags: Fallstudie
Beschreibung:

A hurricane-level storm struck the west coast of the Outer Hebrides in January 2005.

Serious coastal damage and loss of life occurred as a consequence of flooding and erosion.

Various community, local authority and government agency responses occurred quickly. In

September 2006, a series of structural interviews were made to assess how these

responses had developed and what actions had been put in place. Three groups were

recognized: local inhabitants; professional agencies; and local council officials.
