The tornado that moved through the city of Kalamazoo, Michigan, on May 13, 1980, exposed a wide variety of old and new buildings to high winds and windblown debris. This provided an opportunity for a team of four engineers and an architect, sponsored by the Committee on Natural Disasters, to observe, on May 14 through 17, the responses of many types of structures to tornado conditions, and to evaluate the intensity of the near-surface tornadic winds. -from US Govt Reports Announcements, 11, 1982
