Our Thoughts are with the Communities Affected by the Recent Tornadoes
The National Council of Structural Engineers Associations’ (NCSEA) thoughts are with the families and communities affected by the devastating tornadoes that impacted Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Tennessee on December 11, 2021. As structural engineers, this event affects us deeply, both personally and professionally, as our life’s work is to help ensure public safety in the built environment.
NCSEA’s Structural Engineering Emergency Response (SEER) Committee is coordinating with the affected states to assist local jurisdictions with building safety evaluations when requested.
NCSEA remains committed to our continued engagement in code development focused on tornado risk mitigation. The NCSEA Wind Committee will continue to advocate for strengthened building code provisions for structures in high wind and tornado-prone regions of the United States.
