Critical Commentary

The article here presented is part of a range of articles being published on the recent and devastating tropical storm Isaias. While it wreaked havoc through North Carolina, where it touched land as a hurricane, it was also very devastating as it moved through the region as a tropical storm, where gushing winds have cause serious damage to property and killed several Pennsylvania residents. While a tornado has not been confirmed, analysts are evaluating whether that could be the case, given a roof was swept away together with three cars at Doylestown's hospital. It is important that we think about ways in which this storm, the vulnerabilities created by it are going to be handled, the implications they will have for people with chronic illnesses, for the COVID-19 infection probability and the effect of compounding all of the foregoing.
