Meteorological disasters cause phenomena affecting human and national security such as

desertification, drought, severe weather events, seller, land degradation in many corners of the world. The

subject of this study is risk management in meteorological disasters. In this context, disaster, disaster

management, risk and risk management are mainly emphasized. In the paper, the Federal Emergency

Management Agency (FEMA), which is responsible for disaster management of the United States, evaluates

disaster and risk management against natural disasters. However, meteorological disasters will be examined

in the US, as well as the effects of FEMA on the formation process of Harvey and Irma hurricanes and

subsequent risk reduction initiatives.

From here, the Harvey Hurricane hit the southeast coast of the US state of Texas, then the Florida State of the

United States came to the hurricane of the Irish Hurricane. It is aimed to analyze the situation of these

hurricanes from the point of view of integrated disaster management.
