Natural Disasters and Land Surveying

Natural disasters and land surveying

Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, and wildfires have riddled our communities across the country. As of late, it seems there have been more and more frequent tropical storms and wildfires spread across many areas of the United States. Once a natural disaster strikes down, the aftermath can be very difficult to overcome. It’s time for rebuilding once the storm settles, and a crucial art of that rebuild is land surveying. 

A Land Surveyor’s Job After a Natural Disaster

After the search and rescue and other emergency relief, a land surveyor has to get to work on helping to rebuild the community. Most disasters such as coastal hurricanes and tropical storms can confuse the boundary lines of a property. Earthquakes also have the capability to do the same. A land surveyor will have to come in and re-establish those boundaries. 

A land surveyor like BLAZE Design will re-establish boundaries and determine flood elevations. This matters for rebuilding because a piece of land has the capability of becoming useless after a disaster such as a landslide. If a home was on solid ground before, the aftermath could cause the piece of land to be unbuildable, so reworking land use is involved as well. 

Mapping and re-establishing boundary lines are the main jobs, but so is helping a community get their lives back together after the devastation. Having an expert and a professional land surveyor help a community get back on its feet is very crucial.
