MESSAGE #2: 13 December 2021
StEER has Field Assessment Structural Teams (FAST) assembling in the Mayfield, KY region this evening to perform two days of rapid imaging and structural assessments before a weather system comes through on Thursday. Door-to-door structural assessments will continue on Thursday as weather permits. Access to some areas may not be granted, but FAST-1 will work to image the affected areas before debris removal advances significantly. This effort is supported by the RAPID EF and includes collaborations with projects/efforts funded by other federal agencies. We will share updates from our teams on #steer.
