Across the U.S., flood survivors are growing in number — and they aren't just seeking restitution, but answers

Connecting residents affected by flooding to networks of expertise turns victims into activists. In De Soto, Missouri, the Citizen’s Committee for Flood Relief found support from Higher Ground, a nonprofit organization that connects flood survivors to scientists and other experts. The organizations that cooperate with Higher Ground work to find solutions to repeated flooding—whether political or ecological—and also call for equitable distribution of disaster recovery resources.
