Superstorm of March 1993 : March 12-14, 1993
Details:
  • Description:
    "The report on the Superstorm of March 1993 was prepared by the NOAA Natural Disaster Survey Team (DST) following on-scene assessments and interviews conducted mostly between March 17-24, 1993. Such surveys are conducted at the direction of the Assistant Administrator for Weather Services whenever significant weather events occur. The purpose of such reports is to assess the performance of NOAA in altering the public to these events and to make recommendations as to how the National Weather Service (NWS) and the rest of NOAA can better perform its mission. An equally important secondary objective is to assess how the partnership of the NWS, the media, and the government response organizations could be even more effective in alerting the public and thus mitigating the deaths, injuries, and damage that occur in such events. Due to the widespread geographical area affected, the Team was divided into four groups. In their assigned areas, each group contacted and interviewed NWS employees; federal, state, and local EMOS; other public officials; media representatives; and members of the general public. Those interviewed were questioned regarding their perception of the timeliness and accuracy of the forecasts received (whether from NWS or commercial sources) and their actions in response to those forecasts"--Foreword.
