In 2018, Hurricane Michael was a near-Category 5 hurricane when it hit the Florida Panhandle. The massive storm left thousands of residents without housing, power, food or water. The small coastal town of Mexico Beach was devastated along with many small towns that were in Michael’s path. In the wake of the hurricane, researchers started looking at how rural areas fared compared to urban populations after the storm. They discovered there was a “resilience divide” between urban and rural communities.
