Abstract:This study also finds that impacts at the community-level may be highly variable even if the region as a whole recovers quickly. Local economies in the aggregate may recover but not all businesses recover. In Grafton, some businesses returned to their normal functioning soon after the event while others failed due to financial difficulties and a lack of customers. Community recovery planning and post-flood buyout programs can change the demographic composition of a community. Businesses may fail because they are not prepared to serve the changed mix of customers and local demand.
