Hurricane Fiona made landfall on the Island of Puerto Rico on September 17-19, 2022. Ten days later Prairie Engineers received an emergency response task order from the US Army Corps of Engineers to send surveyors to the island.
In this presentation the audience will hear about the steps taken to plan and mobilize for deployment in the aftermath of Fiona, what the surveyors encountered upon arrival, obstacles and challenges overcome in course of performing the surveying and mapping tasks. The audience will see a close look at the damage to transportation infrastructure and changes to the coastal bathymetry. Presentation concludes with lessons learned from 3+ decades of providing geospatial services for emergency response.
Presenter: Scott Perkins, GISP, Prairie Engineers
