Most municipalities don?t appreciate, or understand the disaster relief value of their airport until it?s too late; after it is needed or closed. The Bay Area earthquake and the Northridge earthquake in L.A. are both examples of major disasters where local airports played an invaluable role in the recovery of the area.
