State Farm's Regional Office donated a generous sum of $55,000 to the Wind Science and Engineering (WISE) Research Center on Saturday, February 26, at an event focused on raising the public awareness of severe weather events. The financial support will be used to assist in making valuable scientific measurements from thunderstorms and hurricanes, as well as to support outreach activities and the development of graduate students.
