storm_winds: Modeled county wind speeds for historical storms

Description Usage Format Note Author(s)

Description

A dataframe with modeled winds for historical tropical storms in the Atlantic basin for U.S. counties from 1988 to 2015. For each county, the given wind speed is that modeled at the county's population mean center (based on the 2010 U.S. Census).

Usage

1

Format

A dataframe with 325,856 rows and 6 variables:

fips

County's 5-digit Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) code

vmax_gust

Maximum modeled gust wind speed in the county during the storm.

vmax_sust

Maximum modeled sustained wind speed in the county during the storm.

gust_dur

Time gust wind was above 20 m / s in the county during the storm.

sust_dur

Time sustained wind was above 20 m / s in the county during the storm.

storm_id

Unique storm identifier with the storm name and year, separated by a hyphen(e.g., "Alberto-1988", "Katrina-2005")

Note

These wind speeds were modeled from hurricane best tracks data using the stormwindmodel package to implement the Willoughby wind model. See the "Details" vignette from that package (available at https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/stormwindmodel/vignettes/Details.html) for extensive details on this modeling process.
