|Published:||March 01, 1971|
|Abstract:||One week after Hurricane Camille devastated the Mississippi - Louisiana Gulf Coast with 125 mph winds and 20ft tides on August 17, 1969, a four-man NBS team investigated the damage to buildings and other structures. This report presents photographic survey data from this investigation along with additional data on wind speeds and storm surge. Based on these data, suggestions are made pertaining to the improvement of building design and construction practices.|
