Miscellaneous Disasters

There are many possible disasters to consider, and the effects of most will fall into categories that cause one or more problems.

  • Wind-based (hurricanes and tornados). Use the same appropriate guidelines for earthquakes, as these events will cause the building to shake or vibrate.

  • Water-based (severe storms and tsunamis). Use the appropriate guidelines for water penetration and leak detection on doors and windows.

  • Electrical-based (lightning and thunderstorms). Use adequate grounding for devices and a very good signal reference grid. Also use lightning rods on the exterior of the building that go to a separate earth ground, so impedance does not build up in the standard grounding system.
