Preliminary Virtual Reconnaissance Report for Hurricane Dorian

The NSF-supported Structural Extreme Events Reconnaissance (StEER) team is gearing up to create a Preliminary Virtual Reconnaissance Report for Hurricane Dorian. The PVRR will describes the hazard and impacts to communities based on publicly available information and may be released as soon as September 4. The DesignSafe Slack channel provides real-time information on Dorian reconnaissance (DesignSafe registration required).
