I recall reading that hurricanes are epic scale economic disasters for the agriculture in the Caribbean. E.g. entire crops countrywide got destroyed on multiple occasions throughout the 2000s decade.
Well, so now that we know how bad it can get, can something be done about this? Suppose a rich company or government agency is running a farm in Nicaragua or Cuba. They know ahead of time that maybe once in every three years there will be a big hurricane. What preemptive action can they take to mitigate the economic losses from such disasters? What are the mechanisms of crop destruction by the hurricane and can they be addressed using modern technology on a non-trivial scale? Or is it the case that there is just absolutely nothing that can be done, so that the periodic hurricane damage has to be factored in as a stable cost of doing business?
