Post Storm Data Acquisition

destruction of building   Post Storm Data Acquisition is a result of output from quick response teams fielded under the auspices of the Office of the Federal Coordinator for Meteorology (OFCM). These expert teams collect perishable data following extreme events where damage to structures and inundation areas can be used to infer wind speed, magnitude, and classification of the event. Teams are fielded 12 to 24 hours after an event.
