Pacific Northwest National Laboratory

Hurricanes that intensify rapidly – a characteristic of almost all powerful hurricanes – do so more strongly and quickly now than they did 30 years ago, according to a study published recently in Geophysical Research Letters. The phenomenon is due largely to a climate cycle known as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation.

Hurricane Harvey: Dutch-Texan Research Shows Most Fatalities Occurred Outside Flood Zones

Delft University of Technology

A Dutch-Texan team found that most Houston-area drowning deaths from Hurricane Harvey occurred outside the zones designated by government as being at higher risk of flooding: the 100- and 500-year floodplains. Harvey, one of the costliest storms in US history, hit southeast Texas on 25 August 2017 causing unprecedented flooding and killing dozens. Researchers at Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and Rice University in Texas published their results today in the European Geosciences Union journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences.

Society for Risk Analysis (SRA)

A new study published in Risk Analysis shows that people’s past experiences with tornadoes inform how they approach this type of extreme weather in the future, including their perception of the risk.
