Federal Alliance for Safe Homes applauds Moore's code updates
The organization says the city's new tornado-based design philosophy should be an example for other communities.
In the wake of the one-year anniversary of the devastating tornado that struck Moore, Okla., the Federal Alliance for Safe Homes (FLASH) wants other communities to emulate Moore’s leaders who have aimed to better protect their residents. The Moore tornado took 24 lives, injured 400 and damaged and destroyed nearly 2,400 structures. In response, local officials adopted a stronger building code based on the Dual-Objective-Based Tornado Design Philosophy.
