Welcome to popular Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a popular Wikipedia page every day.
With 352,080 views on Wednesday, 25 March 2020 our article of the day is Waffle House Index.
The Waffle House Index is an informal metric named after the Waffle House restaurant chain and is used by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to determine the effect of a storm and the likely scale of assistance required for disaster recovery.
If you get there and the Waffle House is closed? That's really bad...
The measure is based on the reputation of Waffle House for having good disaster preparedness and staying open during extreme weather, or reopening quickly afterwards.
