Katrina @10 The Science of Resiliency


I found this article fascinating: More than 12 years after Hurricane Katrina, scientists are learning what makes some survivors more resilient than others. Social scientists are looking to understand what charatceristics or access to services lead to some individuals 'surviving' a disaster and other survivors spiraling and never regaining their security. 

Is there a science to resiliency? What characteristics do you see? What would you predict the drivers of relilience to be?
