Hurricane season: "Preparation is key," says Salvano Briceño from ISDR

“Mexico is a good example of hurricane preparedness. Mexican authorities immediately identified populations at risk and reacted accordingly. They are able to organise large-scale evacuation. They relocated tourists and local inhabitants, evacuated workers from the offshore oil platforms and closed the airports very quickly,” says Salvano Briceño, director of the Secretariat for ISDR.
