Description

Extreme wind events associated with atmospheric rivers, tornados, hurricanes, and convective storms can cause severe damage to buildings, vehicles, and injury or death due to downed trees, power lines, flying debris, building damage, and fire. A high wind warning is issued when sustained winds of 40 mph or greater, or gusts to 58 mph or greater, are observed or expected.

Climate Engine provides access to extreme wind datasets, and provides products that describe the potential for extreme wind events for any location based on historical weather datasets. These extreme wind datasets and provides are useful for assessing portfolio risk, fire risk, and potential damage to structures.
