Natural disasters cause billions in damage to ports around the world each year.
A look back at hurricane history suggests we may be significantly underestimating future risks.
Storm Fiona caused a lot of property damage and erosion on the Canadian coast. But its effects are also felt in the depths of the Gulf of St. Lawrence.
Research shows that coastal businesses’ hurricane recovery depends on workers being able to return.
Teaching students techniques to cope with anxiety and stress can help them bounce back after a hurricane upends their life.
About 9% of homeowner property claims nationwide are filed in Florida, yet 79% of lawsuits related to property claims are filed there.
Two hurricane and climate scientists explain what’s known – and still unknown – about global warming’s influence on intensity, rainfall and much more.
Coastal hospitals are still at high risk, nearly two decades after Hurricane Katrina’s flood disaster at Memorial Medical Center shocked the world.
For some people, the risks associated with leaving can seem more dangerous than the storm.
The meteorologist leading NOAA’s 2022 hurricane field program describes flying through eyewalls and the technology in these airborne labs for tracking rapid intensification in real time.
Engineers, architects and builders can design and construct affordable new buildings that can resist tornadoes, floods and wildfires, but do not. We have that opportunity now.
The test facility in Miami helps building designers prevent future storm damage. With the warming climate intensifying hurricanes, engineers are planning a new one with 200 mph winds and storm surge.
Rising populations and a warming climate mean storm surges from super cyclones are likely to affect increasing numbers of vulnerable people.
For the first time, an IPCC climate report has assessed evidence that weather and climate extremes are already affecting mental health — and are likely to worsen.
Global floods in 2021 showed the danger of poor emergency preparedness - and the importance of planning ahead.
When a disaster strikes, you may be stuck for days without power or safe running water. Or you might only have time to grab a bag and go.
Evidence is mounting that, as the climate warms, the amount of rain falling in heavy storms is increasing, especially in the central and eastern US.
Sixteen years after Hurricane Katrina made landfall, the Category 4 storm Hurricane Ida reached Louisiana. Planning for future hurricanes must include the need to build resiliency to climate change.
Ida exploded from a weak hurricane to a powerful Category 4 storm in less than 24 hours, thanks to heat from an ocean eddy. An oceanographer explains its rapid intensification.
Current building codes do not include the most efficient way to keep houses standing and intact during tornadoes.
