Detroit is a natural area for a disaster preparedness and recovery hub. Set on the shore of the Detroit River, in a State open to immigration, Detroit has an existing infrastructure ready for temporary or permanent migration. Money spent on responding to and rebuilding areas prone to natural destruction would be better purposed restoring and re-purposing the Detroit region which is relatively safe from natural disasters.
