StEER NETWORK ACTIVATION
EVENT: 25 MARCH 2021 TORNADO OUTBREAK
LOCATION: SE US (ALABAMA)
DATE OF EVENT: MARCH 25, 2021
CURRENT LEVEL OF RESPONSE: VAST
SLACK CHANNEL: #steer
SOLICITING INTEREST IN VAST AND POSSIBLE REGIONAL FAST (3/26/21)
StEER is currently activating its VAST to author a PVRR for the tornado outbreak that initiated yesterday in Alabama and other parts of the southeast United States. As information is compiled, we will make further decisions regarding whether to activate a FAST to collect data on-site. As CDC still recommends suspending all non-essential travel, it is our preference to have those who are in the immediate vicinity (driving distance from affected locations) collect such data, if they feel safe doing so and if the PVRR suggests this event warrants StEER to elevate the response level.
Those interested in participating in the VAST and/or as a local FAST collecting data in the region should complete this form to be added to our dedicated slack channel for this event.
Please continue to monitor the #steer channel for further updates.
