The Big, Bad Wolf blew down a straw house in the popular fairy tale, but brick houses can be damaged almost as easily by tornadoes or severe wind storms. Greg Kopp, Canada Research Chair in Wind Engineering, will discuss research at Western focused on extreme weather damage to homes in Canada and what we can do about it.
