Wind Damage >> Storm Damage

Certainly, there is convincing proof that powerful hurricane Storm Damage configuration is cyclic, with a vicinity of about twenty years. In this article the association between West African rainfall and U.S. arrival of strong hurricanes, experts present proof that there is a high certain association between rainfall in the West African Sahel and the occurrence of strong hurricanes making arrival along the U.S. East coast.

  1. From 1988 to 1993, the price of Storm Damage on insured property in Florida went from $565.8 billion to $871.7 billion and at the present rate of growth will soon exceed $1 trillion. Though one does not typically think of New York as a state subjected to hurricanes, Long Island is a highly exposed area. Coastal property contact for New York has risen from $301.7 billion to $595.6 billion between 1988 and 1993. This article shows the rise in coastal property contact on a state-by-state basis through the era from 1980 until 1993.
  2. This article also shows the total Storm Damage cost of insured coastal property as of 1993. In Florida by itself, the population raised by 37% to 10.5 million in the era from 1988 to 1993. Additional worsening of the problem, climatic factors progressively prefer a rise in the incidence of strong hurricanes. 1995 was the second most active hurricane season on record. The cause the U.S. was spared by most of 1995's storms was mainly the promising upper-level winds from the southwest that directed the storms out to sea.
  3. While U.S. fatalities due to Storm Damage and other natural disasters are presently lessening because of better forewarning, property losses are rising with population changes to more dangerous zones. This article will look at the Storm Damage dangers to residential property created by hurricanes, and explore steps that could be taken to alleviate the danger to usual wood-frame and masonry-wall houses. Storm Damage from three recent powerful hurricanes Hugo (1989), Andrew (1992), and Iniki (1992) will be used as case conclusions.
  4. Evaluating property contact by allowing for only coastal property miscalculates the danger. Hurricane Hugo, for instance, was a storm that created severe wind damage with hurricane-force winds as far as 140 miles inland, brutally damaging houses and commercial structures in Charlotte, North Carolina. Houston, Philadelphia, and New York City are instances of key urban areas that are just outside the first-tier counties that are typically the only counties considered when in approximations of coastal property Storm Damage contact.
  5. Simultaneous with population growths in hazard-prone zones, there is proof that the future will bring more powerful hurricanes making arrival along the U. S. East and Gulf coasts. Experts agree that we're going to see hurricane wind damage like we've never seen it before. Experts are known for their Storm Damage investigation into the 20-year cycle of powerful Atlantic hurricanes and their progressively precise annual calculations, based on climatic factors, of the amount and harshness of Atlantic hurricanes that will form in a given year.
  6. Authorities found that during Storm Damage episodes of West African Sahel drought there are few powerful hurricanes making U.S. East Coast arrivals, while during rainy episodes in the Sahel a greater number of powerful hurricanes make U.S. East Coast arrival. The added Sahel rainfall creates slow-moving squall methods called easterly waves that act as triggers for hurricane Storm Damage development. The occurrence of powerful Atlantic hurricanes doubles during intervals of Sahel rainfall.
  7. Experts record that the average number of powerful Atlantic hurricanes per year went from about 1.5 per year during dry intervals to about three per year during wet intervals. Seen another way, the number of powerful Storm Damage hurricane days added considerably during wet intervals: the number of powerful hurricane days was four times more than during dry intervals. This proposes that not only are there more powerful Atlantic hurricanes during Sahel wet intervals, but also that these powerful hurricanes are longer-lived.
  8. This article shows the reduction in the occurrence in powerful Atlantic and Gulf hurricanes during the 20 years prior to 1995. Climate reports signify we are returning to an Storm Damage episode of greater Sahel rainfall, which may cause a return to the more active hurricane seasons normal of the 1940s and 1950s. This has stern repercussions for the enormously added residential coastal building during the last 20 years. In the several decades before Hurricanes Hugo and Andrew, few hurricanes struck the United States.
  9. Though, from 1941 through 1950, there were ten main hurricanes that hit the mainland United States. Seven of those Storm Damage struck Florida. From 1951 through 1960, there were eight main hurricanes that struck the United States, seven of which struck the East Coast. For the next 30 years, the only main hurricane to hit the Florida peninsula was Hurricane Betsy in 1965. Likewise, during this episode, no main hurricanes made arrival on the East Coast until the mid-1980s.
  10. It must be noted that while powerful Storm Damage hurricanes were less common during the 1970s and 1980s, the U.S. East and Gulf coasts remained to experience hurricanes, albeit of lesser degree. Storm Damage experts show the occurrence of hurricanes making U.S. East and Gulf coast arrival over the past 45 years irrespective of degree. In addition to a greater number of powerful Atlantic hurricanes as a result of the Sahel rainfall cycle, there is growing distress that global climate may be altering in ways that could raise hurricane occurrence and strength.
  11. Apprehensions have been raised that global warming will put coastal areas at added danger, with additional melting of ice sheets on Greenland, Antarctica, and mountain glaciers, sea levels could rise considerably. Beaches and dunes helping to guard cities along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts from Storm Damage will further wear away. Even a simple 0.9 degree (Fahrenheit) raise in average global temperature could create a 20-day addition of the hurricane season, a 33% jump in U.S. hurricane arrivals.
  12. A growth in Storm Damage storm harshness promoted by warmer ocean temperatures, and a substantial annual rise in disastrous hurricane losses of about 30% by 2010. Global warming could cause changes in rainfall and storm activity, and it might cause random changes in the progression of hurricane activity. Storm Damage storm pathways could be moved further north, allowing for more common U.S. arrivals.
