Surveys & Damage Assessments
One of REZDM’s first requirement in order to plan our projects and possible actions was a deeper understanding of the damages inflicted by Hurricane Maria. We have already undertaken detailed aerial surveys of the community, allowing us to see both the natural and human needs. Although we are on the ground every day in the community the amount of details provided by our aerial surveys have allowed us to better evaluate the number of roofs damaged or totally destroyed. Out of approximately 400 roofs in the village of Soufriere only 40 roofs remained totally intact.
