Jessica Lowther, Arkansas Tech University (ATU) graduate student, conducted research for the purpose of encouraging the use of HAZUS-MH for mitigation and continuity of operations planning as well as aiding the state of Arkansas in a better understanding of the threat of tornadoes across the state. A comparative analysis between the default data supplied by HAZUS-MH and the user-supplied building and inventory data for a tornado at ATU. The ATU tornado models illustrated that including user-supplied data allows for more precise results and, therefore, better planning. This research confirms the importance of hazard modeling and continuity of operations planning.
