Description:

This technical memorandum ranks hurricane damage, as expressed by monetary losses (contemporary estimates adjusted by inflation to 2000 dollars and estimates adjusted for inflation and the growth of population and personal wealth). In addition, the most intense hurricanes to make landfall in the United States during the period 1900-2000 are listed. Some additional statistics on United States hurricanes of this and previous centuries, and tropical cyclones in general, are also presented. The site also has a frequently asked questions section in which several other superlatives are covered, some by the use of charts.
