Topic: Wind and Wind-Related Damage


Ever wanted to participate in weather research or just want a chance to win a weather radio? Help us out! Researchers from UGA and AthensGaWeather need participants for a weather information study on wind and wind-related damage.

All you need is a computer and 20-30 minutes to complete a brief survey. The survey will ask about wind information, any wind-related damage that you may have experienced in the past, and your fear of certain weather conditions.

To participate you must be:

  • 18 years of age or older
  • Currently residing in Athens-Clarke, Barrow, Jackson, Oglethorpe, Madison, Oconee, Elbert, Hart, Franklin, Banks, Hall, Gwinnett, Walton, Rockdale, Newton, Morgan, Greene, Taliaferro, or Wilkes counties.

If you have any questions, please contact Castle Williams by email at:

Upon completion of the study, you will have the opportunity to enter your name into a drawing for a NOAA Weather Radio!
