The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), through the Building Science Branch of FEMA’s Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration (FIMA), deployed Mitigation Assessment Teams (MATs) to Texas, the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI), Puerto Rico, and Florida in 2017 after Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Maria caused severe flooding and high winds, resulting in damage to houses, critical facilities, schools, and other buildings. The teams developed four MAT reports summarizing building performance observations, recommendations, and technical guidance for rebuilding:

    

      - FEMA P-2020, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricanes Irma and Maria in Puerto Rico (FEMA  2018)

      - FEMA P-2021, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricanes Irma and Maria in the U.S. Virgin Islands (FEMA 2018)

      - FEMA P-2022, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Harvey in Texas (FEMA 2019)

      - FEMA P-2023, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Irma in Florida (FEMA 2018)

This Compendium Report summarizes the observations, conclusions, and recommendations from the four MAT reports developed for the 2017 hurricane season. The recommendations are intended to assist the states, communities, design professionals, contractors, building officials, facility managers, floodplain administrators, regulators, emergency managers, building owners, academia, select industries and associations, local officials, and individuals in the reconstruction process, and others to help reduce future damage and impacts from flood and wind events such as those that occurred during the 2017 Hurricane Season. The recommendations will also help FEMA assess the adequacy of hazard resistant building codes and standards to determine whether changes are needed, or additional guidance is required to reduce future hurricane damage.
