dc.description.abstract Natural disasters have disrupted all human societies for thousands of years. These catastrophes manifest in many forms, such as tornadoes, floods, and earthquakes in Indiana. The analysis of Humanitarian Logistics in Indiana Disaster Relief Operations will identify procedures that Indiana disaster relief agencies have used and the outcomes ofthese procedures. I will utilize resources such as the Indiana Department of Homeland Security (IDHS), Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), and the Office of Community and Rural Affairs (OCRA). Interviews with local and state officials will provide clarity to understand how agencies dedicate their resources to overcome daunting challenges like natural disasters. In addition, I will research effective practices in the field of logistics. The purpose of this research paper is to analyze and present results that deal with the pre-planning, initial assessment, coordinated response, and recovery procedures to disasters in Indiana. en_US
