It’s fast approaching that time of year when the Natural Hazards Center gears up for its Annual Natural Hazards Research and Applications Workshop. Unfortunately, that means DR—Disaster Research News You Can Use will need to take a hiatus while our editorial staff gets the Workshop program ready for the printer.

Look for DR 647 to return August 21 with all the same great news items, resources, conferences, and job postings. And don’t forget, you can always get the latest disaster news if you follow us on Twitter.
