Critical Commentary

This article is particularly interesting in its details of the impacts Isaias has had on Connecticut communities. Relevant to this research study is the article's inferences on energy systems being old and vulnerable to tropical storms like Isaias, which will be increasing in the coming years with climate change. Other vulnerabilities to take into consideration are Connecticut residents' and those impacted by Isaias having their homes ruined and destroyed, in some cases, having to choose between hot homes and exposing themselves to the virus by going into shelters. In an overarching and persistent theme, Isaias and COVID-19 intersect and compound already existing vulnerabilities.
