Tropical Cyclones Risk

This indicator assesses the predicted maximum wind speed (mph) on a 50-year return period. Storms can impact companies and value chains through a variety of ways, including building and property damage, flooding or power outages, which may lead to temporary or permanent company closures and loss of revenue. This indicator is based on GFDRR’s tropical cyclonic strong wind and storm surge model, using information from 2,594 historical tropical cyclones, topography, terrain roughness and bathymetry. This database is the most up-to-date repository of information associated with tropical cyclones.
