The Tropical Meteorology Project at Colorado State University continues its work with a firm that specializes in remediation and recovery from natural disasters.

CSU’s partnership with Interstate Restoration, based in Ft. Worth, Texas and with a large presence in Colorado, has translated into $28,000 in new funds for the tropical meteorology research program. The two entities first began working together on a formal basis in 2014.

Said Stacy Mazur, president of Interstate Restoration, “We have been at the forefront of Mother Nature’s unpleasant surprises, and we know the huge value in preparedness planning. This kind of investment in educational programs such as CSU’s Tropical Meteorological Project furthers our efforts to help keep our clients in-the-know.”

The Tropical Meteorology Project and Interstate Restoration have worked together over the years to present webinars, blogs and educational materials to help communities and businesses proactively prepare for hurricanes and other storms.

“We are very grateful for the support that Interstate Restoration has provided over the past several years. We look forward to continuing our partnership for many years to come,” said Phil Klotzbach, head of the Tropical Meteorology Project and lead author of its Atlantic seasonal hurricane forecast.

His next seasonal release forecast will be issued Aug. 4. CSU and Interstate Restoration will continue to provide updated information about the North Atlantic hurricane season as events unfold.
