  • Description:
    "During the Veterans Day weekend of November 9-11, 2002, tornadoes struck 17 states from the Mississippi Valley to the Atlantic Coast and from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. From Saturday afternoon, November 9, to the early morning hours of Monday, November 11, 2002, 76 tornadoes touched down. Twelve of these tornadoes killed 36 people in five states. Due to the magnitude of this event, a service assessment team was formed to examine the warning and forecast services provided to emergency managers (EMs), government agencies, and the public. Service assessments provide a valuable contribution to ongoing efforts to improve the quality and timeliness of our products and services. Findings and recommendations from this assessment will improve techniques, products, services, and the information provided to the American public"--Preface.
