Assignment Overview
Major infrastructure damages have occurred and have deterred operations as a result. This assignment will center around comparing and contrasting natural disasters and their impacts on various critical infrastructures.

Severe devastation from Hurricane Dorian in Bermuda
Severe devastation from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico
Severe devastation from Tropical Cyclone Hagibis in Japan

Extreme heat events nationwide
Choose two events above and present a comparative analysis; you can use a table format noting:

Number of infrastructures destroyed or damaged
Number of homes destroyed or damaged
Type of power (electricity, gas, oil) destroyed or damaged
Dollar amount of total damages
Numbers injured/killed (Healthcare/ Public Health Sector)
From your statistical results, draw a conclusion or conclusions. Include a statement regarding partnering for infrastructure security.

Note: Avoid unprofessional or secondary sources such as Wikipedia, media (CNN, FOX, NPR, newspapers, etc.).
