In response to the April 23rd–April 24th, 2010 tornado outbreak in Mississippi, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) deployed a Pre-Mitigation Assessment Team (PMAT) to survey the general structural damage and the performance of the residential and community safe rooms located along the path of the Tallulah-Yazoo City-Durant tornado. Tornado classification, building damage, building performance, and safe room information was collected through investigative site visits and surveys by the PMAT. These investigations allowed the Team to capture important observations, lessons learned, and recommendations regarding the performance of FEMA-funded residential safe rooms impacted by tornadic winds and debris that had been constructed in accordance with FEMA 320, FEMA-funded community safe rooms impacted by tornadic winds and debris that had been constructed in accordance with FEMA 361, and community safe room operations plans.
