Abstract: Two types of studies were conducted. An exploratory study examined whether 17 theoretical indicators of resilience demonstrate whether communities saved time and money as they recovered from Hurricane Matthew. The other study, a losses avoided study, examined whether the acquisition of flood-prone properties by county and municipal governments increased resilience following Hurricane Matthew. The hazard mitigation projects in the study were implemented after Hurricane Floyd, which struck the coast of North Carolina in 1999 and caused $2 billion of damage, and before Hurricane Matthew, which struck the coast of South Carolina in 2016 and moved north, causing $967 million in North Carolina.
