Yes I believe that FEMA will ship you the HAZUS-MH software. However, it is designed primarily for US construction.

I have been looking for information on some of the models that HAZUS MH MR5 will run and I have not seen a tornado model listed. Will HAZUS-MH MR5 execute tornado damage estimates? Thank you in advance.
