  • FEMA 290, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Fran in North Carolina (1997)

    On September 5, 1996, Hurricane Fran made landfall near Cape Fear, North Carolina. Coastal areas experienced significant erosion and scour. Erosion caused by Hurricane Fran was exacerbated by the previous dune erosion caused by Hurricane Bertha, which made landfall in the same area only two months earlier. The MAT observed very little damage in some areas, where velocity flows, wave action, and severe erosion occurred. The successful performance of buildings in these areas demonstrates the value of compliance with National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) requirements.

  • FEMA 281, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Opal in Florida (1996)

    Hurricane Opal made landfall on October 4, 1995, as a Category 3 storm. Fifteen counties in the Florida Panhandle were declared Federal disaster areas. Field inspections were concentrated along a 200-mile stretch of Florida's Gulf of Mexico shoreline. Most of the structural damage associated with the storm was caused by coastal flood forces: storm surge, wind-generated waves, storm-induced erosion, and floodborne debris. The types of structural damage included slab foundations, pile and pier foundations, and framing systems. Recommendations for reconstruction include the application of v-zone construction requirements; construction materials should meet or exceed the minimum requirements for building materials in the Standard Building Code; slab and grade beams designed as freestanding structural elements; and pile, post, column, and pier foundations designed to accommodate all design flood, wind, and other loads simultaneously.

  • Charles B. Murphy Elementary School Relocation, Hancock County, MS (July 2007)

    On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck the Mississippi Gulf Coast, causing extensive damage. A Presidential Disaster Declaration, FEMA-1604-DR-MS, was subsequently signed for Katrina. The Hancock County School District has applied to FEMA’s Public Assistance Program for funding to relocate and rebuild the Charles B. Murphy Elementary School on higher ground in Kiln, Mississippi. FEMA is required to review the effects of the proposed action on the natural and human environment prior to making a funding decision. This Environmental Assessment has been prepared in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and FEMA’s regulations implementing NEPA.
  • FIA-23, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Iniki in Hawaii (1993)

    On September 11, 1992, Hurricane Iniki struck the Island of Kauai, Hawaii. With wind speeds exceeding those of Hurricanes Iwa (1982) and Dot (1959), Iniki was the strongest and most destructive hurricane to strike the Hawaiian Islands in recent memory. The MAT was tasked with surveying the performance of primarily residential structures under wind and water forces generated during Hurricane Iniki. The team investigated primary structural systems (i.e., systems in a building that resist lateral and vertical forces). For all buildings, the performance of exterior architectural systems, such as roofing, windows, and doors was analyzed. The analysis also included the effects of windborne and waterborne debris and the quality of construction and materials.

  • Farm Shop Storage Building Project, California Polytechnic State University (July 2007)

    The California Polytechnic State University has applied for funding under FEMA’s Public Assistance program for the repair and relocation of its farm shop storage building, which was damaged during the San Simeon Earthquake on December 22, 2003 (Presidential disaster declaration FEMA-DR-1505-CA). FEMA must consider the impacts of the proposed project on the human and natural environment prior to making a funding decision. FEMA has prepared a Final Programmatic Environmental Assessment for Typical Recurring Actions Resulting from Flood, Earthquake, Fire, Rain, and Wind Disasters in California (PEA). However, for the specific actions of this particular project, some resources are not fully assessed in the PEA. Therefore, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act and FEMA’s implementing regulation, this Supplemental Environmental Assessment has been prepared to tier from the PEA.
