Tornado Victims Urged to Repair Damaged Homes To Stronger Standards
Construction standards, such as FORTIFIED Home, can reduce damage and save money on insurance
“We lost a lot of roofs during these last tornados, and homeowners are seeing rain and water ruin everything they've worked for. A Fortified Roof will keep the water out and will resist damage from the storms and lower level tornados we see all too often.”
The study team focused on the city of Tulsa and considered the extent to which data were available for an SROI analysis—that is, whether inputs, outputs, and outcomes could be both documented and quantified. Data collection methods for the study included literature reviews, extensive document analyses, and interviews with more than three dozen key informants in the city of Tulsa in late 2016 and early 2017. This study used the Disaster Resilience Network (DRN) as an organizational locus of activity.
