Disaster Database Moves to Subscription

In reference to my March 5, 2010 post about the Disaster Database:

The creator and editor of that database Dr. Walter G. Green III has notified me that, due to the need for more sustainable maintenance and development of the database, he has moved it to a subscription model.  The database has been migrated to the following URL: http://disastertimes.com/ and is now called the “International Disaster Times.”

The subscription price is $50 for individuals and $500 for institutional subscribers.

An additional interesting feature of the site is a disaster simulation site called “The Republic of Perilo.”

This is a fine and innovative resource.  I wish Dr. Green well in continuing his very important work.
