FIA-23, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Iniki in Hawaii (Text Version)

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.

FIA 22, Mitigation Assessment Team Report: Hurricane Andrew in Florida (Text Version)

On August 24, 1992, Hurricane Andrew struck southern Dade County, Florida. In conducting its survey, the MAT investigated primary structural systems of buildings (i.e.; systems that support the building against all lateral and vertical loads experienced during a hurricane). In addition, the performance of the exterior architectural systems, such as roofing, windows, and doors was analyzed. The analysis included the effects of debris and the quality of construction workmanship. The loss of roof material and roof sheathing and the failure of windows and doors exposed interiors of buildings to further damage from wind and rain. The result was significant damage to building interiors and contents that rendered many buildings uninhabitable. Field observations concluded that the loss of roof cladding was the most pervasive type of damage to buildings in southern Dade County.
