Now that you have studied major natural disasters and the components of critical infrastructure, what do you consider to be the nation`s “weakest link?” In other words, which part of our key infrastructure is the most vulnerable to natural disasters, and what natural catastrophic event poses the greatest threat? Support your conclusions with credible references. Your initial post should address these questions in at least 300 words. Your response needs to thoroughly address the issues presented in the question and should be concise and without spelling or grammatical error. Remember that in graduate work journal articles are considered to be the best support for your position when researching and writing. Make sure you search out the relevant journals containing peer-reviewed articles pertaining to natural disasters and security planning. Your replies to your classmates should be substantive, should ask probing questions, and should augment existing critical issues presented in the posting you are commenting on. In addition, your comments should provide an enhancement of the issues being discussed and addressed in the posting.

With reference to the aspects of the infrastructure that are affected when a hurricane hits, communication is one of the most vulnerable of all (Vigdor, 2008). Interrupting the communication infrastructure also tends to disrupt the rest of the services that are being offered during the entire operations (Piotrowski, 2013). During the hurricane Katrina that took place on 29th of August of 2005, one of the major disruptions that took place at the time was communication breakdown.
