Building Performance Assessment Team Report - Hurricane Georges in Puerto Rico - Presentation

This is a presentation of the MAT report on Hurricane Georges in Puerto Rico. That report presented FEMA's Building Performance Assessment Team's (BPAT) observations on the success and failure of buildings in Puerto Rico in withstanding the wind and flood forces generated by Hurricane Georges. In addition, the seismic resistance of some of the buildings observed was assessed. Recommendations to improve building performance in future natural disasters and mitigation success stories in Puerto Rico are included.
