  • Historical severe weather data tool

    Developed by the Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program, this experimental geospatial tool provides dynamic mapping of several climate hazards in the southern U.S., including tornadoes, severe wind, and hail. You can query the severe weather database to create maps, tables, or graphs of hazards in a specific region, based on intensity, or based on number of injuries or fatalities. The tool is useful for emergency management, hazard assessment and planning, and other climate-related decisions.
