After a natural disaster strikes, there’s only a tiny window of opportunity to rally effective recovery efforts before the world turns their attention elsewhere. Who should be in charge? When a freak tornado hit their hometown, sisters Caitria and Morgan O’Neill — just 20 and 24 at the time — took the reins and are now teaching others how to do the same. (Filmed at TEDxBoston.)
When a freak tornado hit her Massachusetts hometown, Caitria O’Neill wasn’t an expert in disaster relief recovery. But she learned quickly and is now passing her knowledge on through the website Recovers.org.
