ANNOUNCEMENT ON VAST ENROLLMENT (1/7/20)

StEER is currently monitoring the Puerto Rico earthquake and is in communication with faculty at UPRM conducting preliminary damage assessments. We are activating a Virtual Assessment Structural Team (VAST) to begin compiling information in support of their efforts, which will then inform subsequent levels of response from StEER in coordination with other partners. 

 

Information is currently being shared on #puerto-rico-eq-1-6-2020 channel on Slack. StEER has established a secure VAST channel for those wishing to participate in authoring the preliminary virtual reconnaissance report. To be added, please directly message Tracy Kijewski-Correa (tkijewsk) in Slack.

 

We will continue to post further information on Slack and will send follow up emails if Field Assessment Structural Teams are mobilized.
