StEER NETWORK ACTIVATION

EVENT: HURRICANE ZETA

LOCATION: LOUISIANA, MISSISSIPPI 

DATE OF EVENT: OCT. 28, 2020​ 

CURRENT LEVEL OF RESPONSE: VAST

SLACK CHANNEL: #steer  

SOLICITING INTEREST IN VAST AND POSSIBLY FAST RESPONSE (10/28/20)

StEER is soliciting interest in participation in the event response for Hurricane Zeta. Consistent with our approach to other Gulf Coast Hurricanes this season during this time of an active pandemic, we will focus on virtual and regional participation modes:

  1. Working on virtual assessment structural teams (VAST) to compile preliminary assessments of damage

  2. Participating in regional field assessment structural teams (VAST) engaging members within driving distance of the affected areas to collect data on performance of the built environment and/or levels of storm surge. 

While the full extent of StEER’s response is not known at this time, we anticipate at minimum releasing an Event Briefing informed by VAST contributions. Any FAST response will likely commence next week. To express interest in either or both levels of participation, please register at this form. You will then be added to a private slack channel for further coordination.

SOLICITING INTEREST IN VAST AND LOCAL CONTACTS (10/30/20)

StEER is soliciting interest in participation in the event response for the Dodecanese Islands Earthquake (affecting Greece and Turkey). Given the restrictions on travel in an active pandemic, we will focus on virtual modes with the possibility of engaging local partners in field data collection. Thus StEER is soliciting member interest in:

  1. Working on virtual assessment structural teams (VAST) to compile preliminary assessments of damage

  2. Assisting with identifying local partners who may be able to conduct field assessments, if warranted. 

While the full extent of StEER’s response is not known at this time, we anticipate at minimum releasing an Event Briefing informed by VAST contributions. To express interest in assisting in either or both of the modes above, please register at this form. You will then be added to a private slack channel for further coordination.

SOLICITING INTEREST IN VAST AND LOCAL CONTACTS (11/3/20)

StEER is soliciting interest in response to Hurricane Eta which landfell in Nicaragua, yet another storm in what continues to be a historic 2020 Hurricane Season. Given the restrictions on travel in an active pandemic, we will again focus on virtual modes with the possibility of engaging local partners in field data collection for this potentially catastrophic hurricane. Thus StEER is soliciting member interest in:

  1. Working on virtual assessment structural teams (VAST) to compile preliminary assessments of damage, with particular request for participation to colleagues with Spanish-language ability

  2. Assisting with identifying local partners who may be able to conduct field assessment 

 

While the full extent of StEER’s response is not known at this time, we anticipate at minimum releasing an Event Briefing for Hurricane Eta informed by VAST contributions. To express interest in assisting in either or both of the modes above, please register at this form. You will then be added to a private slack channel for further coordination.
