Northeast

Northeast Region - Michigan's Lower Peninsula, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Washignton DC, Pennslyvania, Maryland, Delware, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachutsetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and Maine

Storms and hurricanes, blizzards, floods, tornadoes, wildfires and earthquakes are some of the conditions that can cause emergencies or disasters for the people of the Northeast.

The Northeast region has received more than its share of snow in recent years. Severe weather or other man-made disasters can have devastating effects on tribes.

  • Native people living in the Northeast are accustomed to extreme winter weather, but when several feet of snow drops in a short period of time, roofs can collapse, trees can fall and travel can be nearly impossible
  • Lake effect snow can also contribute to snowfall totals in the Northeast
  • Flooding, hurricanes, and tornadoes can be equally unpredictable

Remember to make a plan, build a kit, and be informed
