Preliminary Reports

In the weeks and months following Hurricane Katrina, several teams from MCEER visited the stricken area to collect perishable data on structural damage to bridges, buildings and other infrastructure, investigate the performance of the area’s hospitals, examine public health and environmental issues, and conduct surveys of large affected areas using state-of-the-art remote sensing technologies.

Detailed preliminary reports prepared at the time of the field investigations contain summaries of damage, initial observations and many photographs. A report series entitled “Engineering and Organizational Issues Before, During, and After Hurricane Katrina,” present the findings of the teams in greater detail.
