In the wake of the devastating tornadoes that swept through 4 states on Tuesday, Texas Tech is sending a team from its Wind Engineering School out to do research in the affected areas. A team of 2 wind researchers will leave for Tennessee first thing in the morning. They'll be gathering information about the damaged structures in an effort to improve building tactics and structural stability in areas prone to tornadoes and hurricanes. They plan to leave first thing Thursday morning and be back sometime next week.
