Member Letter – U.S. Hurricane Irene/Floods

Dear Colleagues:

IEEE members and volunteers worldwide have been following with great concern the recent effects of Hurricane Irene and Tropical Storm Lee, including the flooding in the eastern and southern parts of the United States and the Caribbean. I write to express our sympathy for all affected by this most recent natural disaster, including tens of thousands of IEEE members who reside in the involved areas. We are in the process of assessing damage to IEEE physical property due the storms and the earlier earthquake, and are committed to work with the affected groups to guarantee orderly recovery of all IEEE organizational units.
 
The occurrence of severe hurricanes, floods, tornados, earthquakes and tsunamis around the world accentuates the importance of robust design of the physical infrastructure – an ongoing objective of our community.  Among the issues that were exposed during the 23 August 2011 earthquake on the East Coast of the United States was the non-availability of many cellular telephony networks after the tremors had subsided.  This is a significant challenge for us, as cellular phones are increasingly the preferred means of voice communication by the public, and are considered widely to be effective in times of emergency. In the areas hit by the earthquake, one in 4 households had a cell phone – but no traditional landlines.
 
IEEE stands ready to ensure continued support of the professional needs of our members and volunteers, and to create the appropriate forums where the technical lessons from the recent circumstances will be proposed and discussed. We extend heartfelt wishes for your continued safety and well-being, and restate our commitment to use what we have learned during the last two weeks to mitigate future natural disasters to the best of human ability.
 
You may contact me at m.kam@ieee.org.
 
Sincerely,
Moshe Kam
IEEE President and CEO
