"The 'LLIS.gov' [Lessons Learned Information Sharing] team has compiled various resources to help support efforts and initiatives focused on preparedness, response, and recovery following the May 20, 2013, Oklahoma Tornado. These resources are topic-specific and have been analyzed in order to provide support during the tornado response. More than 10,000 homes were damages or destroyed by the May 20, 2013, tornado, leaving many individuals and families in need of housing assistance. A variety of national and local organizations are in the process of providing temporary and transitional housing to Moore, OK, residents whose homes have been heavily damaged or destroyed. The 'LLIS.gov' team found that following many recent disasters, innovative housing techniques and solutions were formulated and implemented to serve displaced residents. These disasters include Hurricane Sandy and the Japan earthquake and tsunami."
