Abstract

A methodology is developed, based on specially designed input-output and linear programming models. A simulation of a major earthquake in the seismic zone near Memphis, Tennessee, indicates the potential production loss over the recovery period could amount to as much as 7% of gross regional product. Reallocation of scarce electricity across sectors could reduce the impacts substantially
