Improved city resilience against winter storms

Abstract

Extreme winter storms disrupt citizens' normal lives by blocking roads and causing electricity and communication network outages. In addition, power interruptions may cool down all houses without wood-burning stoves. Loss of critical infrastructure services such as house-warming, electricity and communication capabilities may lead citizens to the brink of danger unless they are notified in advance or moved to safe places. The critical infrastructures can be made more resilient by discovering the vulnerabilities and reducing them with enhanced failure analysis tools. The improved resiliency includes effective evacuation defined by the analysis of the most vulnerable houses and population.
