To Aid in Nashville Tornado Recovery, EagleView Captures and Donates Fixed-Wing Aerial Imagery to Davidson County
During the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 3, a category EF-3 tornado ripped through the Nashville, Tennessee, area. With estimated winds of up to 140 miles per hour, and the extreme damage caused by the storm, EagleView sprang into action to begin capturing imagery to aid in recovery and emergency response planning.
EagleView is providing these images to local governments and municipalities in Davidson County, TN, free of charge in order to support recovery operations. EagleView will also make this imagery available to insurance customers to assist in the claims settling process.
In response to the deadly and devastating tornadoes in Tennessee, our fixed-wing aircraft was deployed to capture high-resolution imagery of the tornado’s devastating path. Overnight, images were sent to be processed, and the first look at the damage provided crucial information to aid recovery efforts within 27 hours of responding to the event.
Gathering post-event imagery as soon as possible is critical for multiple reasons. Homeowners and insurers can complete the claims process more efficiently and with greater accuracy, and contractors can begin repairs with high-resolution imagery to guide them. In addition, our images help first responders and emergency efforts by providing responders with the most recent view from the sky.
Our thoughts go out to those impacted by this week’s tornado and we hope that our efforts can play a role in returning life to normal for all Tennesseans.
