Why are Atlantic and Gulf coast property owners building back bigger…

Goldstein, University of North Carolina – GreensboroU.S. coastal counties are densely populated and extensively developed. They also are directly exposed to sea-level rise and storms, which scientists predict will become more destructive as climate change progresses.But despite forward-looking environmental management and land-use planning intended to reduce future risk, development trends in many coastal locations are running in the opposite direction.As geoscientists, we are interested in natural physical processes of coastal change and in how human decisions interact with natural processes. In our research on broad development trends in hurricane alleys of the U.S. Atlantic and Gulf coasts, we have found that houses rebuilt in the years following a hurricane typically increased in size relative to their original footprints.In other words, these homes were built back bigger in places known to be vulnerable to coastal hazards. Recognizing the emerging pattern of these risky investments is an important step toward understanding why people are making them in the first place. As critics point out, federal disaster aid and subsidized flood insurance are funded with taxpayer dollars, so Americans far from the coasts effectively subsidize development in hazardous areas.Expanding footprintsAlthough coastal shoreline counties (excluding Alaska) account for less than 10% of total U.S. land area, in 2010 they were home to 39% of the national population. Between 1970 and 2010, coastal shoreline counties added 3.5 times more people per square mile than the nation as a whole.Hurricanes are a well-known hazard along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts. The 2018 Atlantic hurricane season included 15 named storms, of which eight were hurricanes. Two became major systems: Hurricane Florence (Category 4) and Hurricane Michael (Category 5), with a combined estimated total of US$50 billion in damages.Even an average season, as NOAA is forecasting for 2019, might include 12 named storms, with six becoming hurricanes and three reaching intensities of at least Category 3.Population in Atlantic and Gulf coast counties grew every year from 2000 to 2016 except for 2005-2006.U.S. Census BureauThis means coastal property owners stand a good chance of being in a storm’s path in any given year. But it remains unclear how they factor coastal hazards into their economic decisions. Relatively few studies have tracked long-term patterns of socio-economic recovery and demographic change after Atlantic hurricane strikes.In the 1990s coastal researchers started reporting anecdotally that they were seeing houses that had been destroyed by major storms rebuilt later to larger dimensions. They describe occurrences in South Carolina after Hurricane Hugo in 1989; Massachusetts after the Halloween Storm of 1991; and New Jersey after storms in 1962, 1984 and 1992.Seeking to quantify these descriptions, we examined a total of nearly 5,000 building footprints in five beach communities that were hit by hurricanes between 2003 and 2016: Mantoloking, New Jersey; Hatteras, North Carolina; Santa Rosa Island, Florida; Dauphin Island, Alabama; and Bolivar, Texas. Our data, which we digitized from satellite imagery, bore out descriptions of building back bigger. Moreover, we found that houses newly constructed (not rebuilt) after hurricanes in these communities tended to be larger than houses that predated the hurricanes.What could explain this pattern? With so many possible drivers, we don’t yet know the answer, but two potentially important factors stand out: variances from local planning laws and engineered hazard protections.Is bigger better?Many coastal communities have updated their building codes in recent decades in order to make houses less prone to damage in major storms. But storm-proofing improvements are not silver bullets.A team investigating the Bolivar Peninsula immediately northeast of Galveston, Texas after Hurricane Ike in 2008 found that houses arrayed along the same multi-kilometer stretch of shoreline experienced different kinds of damage. Homes elevated on pilings sustained more damage from wind than from flooding, while the opposite was true for houses that were not elevated. The properties that fared best tended to be older and built on slightly higher elevations set back from the shoreline.Another research team modeling impacts from Hurricane Sandy in 2012 on The Rockaways in the New York City borough of Queens found little correlation between building height or ground-surface area and hazard indicators, such as the power and depth of flooding and the strength of wave impacts.Precautionary regulations are better than nothing, and efforts are growing to provide guidance for “building back better” after disasters. Unfortunately, in many parts of the U.S. it is possible to avoid such requirements.Properties built prior to the inception of new building codes may receive variances from local planning and enforcement authorities. Such practices, along with lack of enforcement of existing planning rules, has been well documented in North Carolina and Florida. Homes like the so-called “super house” in Mexico Beach, Florida, which was built with features that far exceeded local building codes and weathered Hurricane Michael in October 2018 with only minor damage, are exceptions, not the rule.Russell King and Dr. Lebron Lackey describe how they built one of the few houses left standing in Mexico Beach, Florida, after Hurricane Michael.Encouraging risky choicesEngineering projects such as beach nourishment – adding sand to eroded shorelines – and seawalls may also indirectly encourage development. Experts call this pattern, in which hazard protections promote risky land-use decisions, the “safe development paradox.”We are exploring connections between coastal development and beach nourishment projects, and have found that in Florida – the most hurricane-battered state in the U.S. – houses are larger and more numerous in areas that practice beach nourishment. Moreover, Florida beachfront houses built in the last decade are far larger than older houses, and the relative size difference is most pronounced in nourishment areas.In another study spanning the entire U.S. Atlantic coast, we found that since beach nourishment became commonplace in 1960, large-scale trends in average rates of shoreline change have reversed. Using records from the U.S. Geological Survey, we calculated that, before 1960, the Eastern Seaboard was eroding at an average rate of approximately 21 inches (55 centimeters) per year.Since 1960, however, the direction of average shoreline change has reversed, expanding seaward by approximately 2 inches (5 centimeters) per year – even as sea levels rise. And the greatest reversals have occurred in zones of intensive beach nourishment. Our results suggest that beach nourishment has obscured ongoing erosion enough to make shorelines appear more stable than they actually are.Getting incentives rightThe trend of building back bigger could be blunted if sea level rise begins to affect markets for coastal real estate. But the same trend could arise in other settings, such as urban areas prone to wildfires, if recovery regulations and infrastructure upgrades send the same kind of mixed signals about whether an area is safe to develop.Ultimately, coastal development is a political issue. With coastal hazards only getting worse, regulators will need to make difficult choices to ensure that development patterns actually trend toward lower future risk.Eli Lazarus is an Associate Professor in Geomorphology, at the University of Southampton and Evan B.

Matryoskha House transforms an early 20th century townhouse into two high-end apartments by radically opening it up. Situated in the center of Rotterdam, the house was in a derelict state due the previous owner’s conversion of it into a sub-standard workers’ hotel. Bothered by the neglect, a neighbor acquired the property and gave Shift architecture urbanism the commission to give it an extreme makeover. Save this picture!© NoortjeKnulstThe house was stripped to nothing but it’s envelope and flooring structure, the later partly removed in each unit to create double-height living spaces.

Charities urged to update funeral support in line with Covid-19 restrictions

first_img With Covid-19 restrictions impacting funerals, Legacy Foresight is urging charities to update their funeral support.In-memory motivated giving is worth around £2.2bn a year to UK charities, while funeral collections account for half of all donations and a third of the total value of gifts made in-memory. However, this year’s restrictions mean many people have been unable to attend funerals or give their loved ones the send-off they would want for them. As a result, Legacy Foresight is predicting that there could be a wave of ‘compensatory’ memorial events in spring/summer next year or as soon as restrictions are lifted.To assess the information offered to supporters around funeral giving during the pandemic, it has reviewed the websites of 40 charities and hospices.Research findingsTwo thirds of charities made no acknowledgement of the coronavirus pandemic to their bereaved supporters, how difficult this might be for them and how the restrictions might be affecting their needsOnly 10% signposted supporters to the latest Government guidelines on planning and attending a funeral – including up-to-date news on restrictionsJust one charity offered to support the donor with any future/‘compensatory’ memorial event that they might be considering for a later dateLess than two-thirds of charities offered supporters an online collection page as an alternative to a physical collection at the funeral – focusing instead on methods that are (at least temporarily) redundant, such as collection envelopes Tagged with: COVID-19 funeral Melanie May | 22 October 2020 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

With cash or cheque collections often not possible, online donations on the pages have also doubled, showing the continuing desire to support charities in response to a death. With the ongoing impact of Covid-19, we believe there is a particular need and opportunity for charities at this time to reach out to their supporters to provide information and assistance with bereavement, both at the time of the funeral and in supporting them afterwards.” Charities urged to update funeral support in line with Covid-19 restrictions AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis2 Advice for charitiesLegacy Foresight notes that since lockdown began, many funeral directors have been proactive in offering families the option of an online funeral notice, allowing them to collect donations. Online platforms like tribute fund pages are also increasingly being sought out to memorialise loved ones and donate in their name.It is urging charities to ensure they are also offering support, such as offering an actual presence – or charity collateral – on the day itself for those planning future memorials, and offering fundraising platforms to help celebrate, memorialise and fundraise in memory of the loved one, if they were a supporter.Kate Jenkinson, head of in-memory consultancy at Legacy Foresight, said:“Charities have an unprecedented opportunity to support families who are planning memorials for their loved ones, but they urgently need to make their information about funerals more agile and responsive to the times. Offering dynamic and reliable information around funeral giving – including relevant donation options – is one of the best ways charities can help those who come forward in memory of a loved one. It should be a core part of their overall strategy of support in these times.” Advertisementlast_img read more

A bench comprised of Justice L. Nageswara Rao and Justice S. Ravindra Bhat has issued notice to the Bihar Government and other Respondents on the plea filed by one Mukesh Kumar, contending that the High Court wrongly disposed of the PIL despite sufficient material on record, showing the illegal functioning of the Council. Kumar had approached the High Court last year, alleging that the Bihar State Pharmacy Registration Council is issuing registration certificates on the basis of fake certificates produced before it. It was also alleged that he Council is granting the certificate on the basis of experience gained by the person, which is completely against the provisions of the Pharmacy Act, 1948. The matter was disposed of by a division bench comprised of Chief Justice Sanjay Karol and Justice Anil Kumar Upadhyay, granting liberty to the Petitioner to verify each case individually and apprise the Bihar State Pharmacy Council or the State Government, of the same. Aggrieved by this order, the Petitioner has approached the Supreme Court through AoR Rachitta Priyanka, alleging involvement of the Council in the illegal practice of granting fake registration to pharmacists and seeking inquiry against it. It is submitted that he had already submitted a report to the Bihar Government, highlighting the illegalities committed by the Council, but no action had been initiated so far. Further, even the Pharmacy Council of India reported the matter of fake registration of Pharmacists in Bihar to the State Govt., but no action was taken thereof. In this backdrop it is submitted, “When the State Govt. is not taking cognizance over the report submitted by the Pharmacy Council of India, they would hardly take any cognizance of the matter placed by this petitioner. Moreover, this petitioner had already brought on record sufficient material to show that large number of persons have obtained forged certificate of registration from the Bihar State Pharmacy Council. Still the State Govt. did not take any action to look into or enquire into the functioning of the Bihar State Pharmacy Council. …when the State Govt. is not responding to the materials brought on record by the petitioner with regard to the illegal functioning of the Bihar State Pharmacy Council and fake registration being granted by it, by a person, who is not eligible to hold the post of Registrar of the Council, no fruitful purpose would be served by asking the petitioner to identify the individual cases.” It is pointed out that the High Court had itself directed the State Govt. to file a comprehensive counter affidavit in the matter but later, the PIL was disposed of sans counter affidavit and the liability to identify the individual cases was shifted upon the Petitioner. The Petitioner has also placed on record a list of 543 Pharmacists, registered with the Bihar State Pharmacy Registration Council, whose registration was found to be fake by the Jharkhand State Pharmacy Registration Tribunal. Allegedly, the Council is continuing with such registration, regardless of the Tribunal’s findings. Click Here To Download Order Read Order Next Storylast_img read more
