HAPPENING NOW | Hurricane Florence Discussion and Resources on DesignSafe

  1. Dedicated Slack channel for Hurricane Florence (hurricane-florence) discussion and information dissemination. Channels can be joined from the menu on the left.
  2. Recon Portal category added (2018 Hurricane Florence) and ready for data collection.
  3. RAPID Facility state-of-the-art portfolio of field instrumentation now available by online request to support Hurricane Florence field reconnaissance.

DesignSafe is the web-based research platform of the NHERI Network that provides the computational tools needed to manage, analyze, and understand critical data for natural hazards research.

Hurricane Lane and the Hawaiian Islands

Hurricane Lane, a major Pacific Ocean hurricane, narrowly missed making landfall on the main Hawaiian Islands, but still caused considerable damage due to high winds and heavy rainfall. Hurricane Lane formed in the East Pacific as a tropical depression and strengthened as it moved westward over warm waters.
