SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In response to the tornado that impacted Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011 (Joplin tornado), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) sent four engineers to the area to conduct a preliminary reconnaissance to conduct an initial assessment of the event to assist the NIST Director in determining whether a full technical investigation of the event was warranted. Based on the analysis of the data collected and other pertinent information, the NIST Director established a Team under the authorities of the National Construction Safety Team (NCST) Act (15 U.S.C. 7301 et seq.) on June 29, 2011 to conduct a detailed technical investigation. The establishment of the NCST Team was announced in the Federal Register on July 19, 2011 (76 FR 42683). The investigation objectives were: 1. Determine the tornado hazard characteristics and associated wind fields in the context of historical data. 2. Determine the response of residential, commercial, and critical buildings, including the performance of designated safe areas. 3. Determine the performance of lifelines as it relates to the continuity of operations of residential, commercial, and critical buildings. 4. Determine the pattern, location, and cause of fatalities and injuries, and associated emergency communications and public response. 5. Identify, as specifically as possible, areas in current building, fire, and emergency communications codes, standards, and practices that warrant revision. The draft report outlines 47 findings related to the May 22, 2011, Joplin tornado and concludes with a list of 16 recommendations for action in areas of improved measurement and characterization of tornado hazards, new methods for tornado resistant design of buildings, enhanced guidance for community tornado sheltering, and improved and standardized emergency communications. Request for Public Comment: Persons interested in commenting on the draft investigation report should submit their comments as instructed above. NIST will consider all comments received and may revise the report based on such comments. All comments will be made publicly available without redaction, so the public should not include personal or proprietary information in comments.
