Although it is known that some building and hazard characteristics are the determining factors for the level of devastation caused by a tornado, quantification of how much specific parameters contribute to damage is still unknown. This research will use empirical remote sensing damage data from the May 22, 2011 tornado in Joplin, MO to create fragility curves based on specific building and hazard characteristics.
