Tame the risks posed by rampant tropical cyclones and keep your assets safe with DisasterAWARE Enterprise™
What is a Tropical Cyclone?
Hurricanes and Tropical Storms cause more deaths and destruction than any other weather disaster in the United States. At up to 600 miles wide, with wind speeds of 200 miles per hour. They potentially last weeks. Hurricanes and Tropical storms wreak havoc on anything standing in their way.
Tropical Cyclones consist of three different levels:
- Tropical Depression: 38mph or less (34 knots)
- Tropical Storm: 39-74mph (39-74 knots)
- Hurricane: 74+ (64 knots)
Hurricane Seasons are from mid May through November.
Each Tropical Storm estimates to cost at least $22 Billion in infrastructure damages. From 1980 to 2019, tropical storms have caused $927 billion in damages. Just from 2018-2019 costed $136 Billion.
Long term effects: no power, Hurricane Maria: 7 weeks after 50% of Puerto Rico was still without power
