When in doubt, you can estimate based on topography from google earth. Good luck.

Thanks David - That's what I used to look up the Seismic . . however UFC-3-301 doesn't list wind loads in South America for some reason - just the seismic.

What Bill P. was suggesting was to look through UFC 3-300-10 (I believe). It lists design data of seismic, wind and snow for various military installations throughout the US and the world. If there is something at or near Samta Maria, Brazil that doc should have it. Search google for that doc or search the wbdg.org site. The UFC doc is titled "Structural Load Data."
