Disaster strikes anytime and anywhere, It takes many forms- a hurricane, a blizzard, a flood, a fire or a hazardous spill, an act of nature or an act of terrorism. It builds over days or weeks, or it hits suddenly, without warning. Every year, millions of Americans face disaster, and its terrifying consequences. Often Harwich residents become affected by these events.
