Live Demos & Simulations
The Storm Expo provides a first-hand experience at the latest innovations that are designed and developed to inform and prepare communities from hurricanes, tornadoes, and other storm-related disasters in addition to demonstrating advanced anti-storm technology and simulate the many instances and situations that occur during hurricanes, tornadoes, and other instances of storm disasters.
Discover how to better prepare you and those around you when you witness the devastating effects of hurricanes and tornadoes and see live demos of the newest technology in tornado and hurricane detection, safety, management, and post-disaster relief.
See how tornado shelters, both above-ground shelters and underground concrete shelters, are structured to save lives and protect you and those around you from the devastating power of a tornado.
Get a first-hand look at how weather experts detect tornadoes with a hybrid system of radar detection and in-person spotters, with technology like the CASA able to accurately detect immediate changes in the tornado’s direction. Other detection tools include satellite, reconnaissance aircrafts, ships, buoys, radar, and other methods to accurately measure and predict the pathway and intensity of a hurricane before it reaches landfall.
Immerse yourself in a VR simulation of what it’s like to witness a hurricane, tornado and other storms in-person as well as getting a VR experience of how to better prepare yourself when encountering such disasters and understanding the significance of category, wind speed, and debris damage.
Be sure you get to experience the many demonstrations and simulations that help give you and those around you a better understanding to prepare and act when a storm-related disaster hits.
