Historical Weather Risk
Historical Weather Risk contains comprehensive, historical records of hazardous weather data including hurricane, hail, tornado, and windstorm events. Each weather hazard contains attribution about the date and the severity of the event.
Wind events use the Beaufort Wind scale, tornadoes use the Fujita-Pearson scale, hail events use the TORRO intensity scale, and hurricane events reference the Saffir-Simpson scale. Additional attribution including magnitudes, fatalities, injuries, crop/property damages, and other meteorological details are provided as available.
