Event Summary

Hurricane Irma is a tropical cyclone that recently made landfall in the U.S. state of Florida as a major hurricane, and was the most intense Atlantic hurricane observed in over a decade. It is also the most intense hurricane to strike the United States since Katrina in 2005, and the first major hurricane to hit the state of Florida since Wilma in 2005. The storm caused catastrophic damage in the island of Barbuda, Saint Barthélemy, Saint Martin, Anguilla and the Virgin Islands as a Category 5 hurricane. The storm hammered South Florida with rain and wind before twice making landfall and then tore apart homes, flooded the Keys and swelled rivers as it moved northward.

The Coalition

The coalition that came together under the direction of Vexcel Imaging to provide response in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey has mobilized to Florida to provide aerial imagery support there in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The coalition has grown, adding additional aircraft and all using UltraCam sensor systems for highest quality and most accurate imagery available to rapidly collect, process and transfer imagery of those regions in Florida most impacted by Irma’s intense winds, torrential rains and ensuing floods.
