The US isn’t ready for stronger hurricanes, experts say. How structures are built could help.

Hurricane recovery can last at least a decade and sometimes longer, said Tracy Kijewski-Correa, an engineering and global affairs professor at the University of Notre Dame who has worked on several major disasters, including 2017's Hurricane Harvey in Texas.

For scientists, Hurricane Ian is posing threats—and opportunities

Events like Ian offer a “very good stress test” for buildings, says Tracy Kijewski-Correa, director of the program and a civil engineer at the University of Notre Dame.

New lab to simulate 200 mph hurricanes in quest to make storm-resistant homes

But turning that science into on-the-ground home improvement will be another challenge, says Tracy Kijewski-Correa, a structural engineer at Notre Dame University and NICHE co-lead researcher.

Here Come the First Responders ... And the Engineers?

When you first see the sheer magnitude of destruction at the site where a hurricane made landfall, “there’s usually a take-your-breath-away moment,” says Tracy Kijewski-Correa, a structural engineer at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana.
