High wind impacts on the Wasatch Front – Saratoga Springs

Year: 2023

Presenter Name: Jennifer Jentzsch

The Wasatch Front Range has experienced major windstorms causing Utah citizens to be concerned about how future events could affect them. In our research project, we concentrated on the city of Saratoga Springs, Utah. The methods we used for gauging wind event impact involved researching statewide weather information utilizing local news and historical weather information with a focus on Saratoga Springs. Our goal was to develop information on what the public could do to prepare for a wind event and what to do during the event. We then compiled an informational document that could be potentially used on a web-based platform. After additional research and recommendations from future cohorts of students with a focus on other cities along the Wasatch front. These findings could then be consolidated and offered for use to different emergency sites, which currently have no materials that are specific to wind events such as BeReady Utah. (
