City of Kivalina, Alaska: Local Hazards Mitigation Plan
The scope of the Kivalina Local Hazards Mitigation Plan (LHMP) is natural hazards: flooding, erosion, severe weather, and earthquake hazards. However, some of the mitigation projects for the natural hazards would also mitigate impacts from other hazards.
The Kivalina LHMP includes information to assist the city government, the Tribal government and residents with planning to avoid potential future disaster losses. The plan provides information on natural hazards that affect Kivalina and descriptions of past disasters, and lists projects that may help the community prevent disaster losses. The plan was developed to help the City make decisions regarding natural hazards that affect Kivalina.
