Dorian is an extremely dangerous category five hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind
It made landfall on Saturday, July 13 near Intercoastal City, Louisiana as a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind
Scale with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph (120 km/hr).
damaged buildings and cut off power lines in Sopot, Karlovo and the nearby settlements in Central Bulgaria on 15th of January.
Communicating the risk posed by Hurricane Sandy when it approached the coast of the northeastern United States in 2012 was made more difficult because Sandy was a very large hurricane but was only rated category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson hurricane wind
J Robert Hunter, director of insurance for CFA and former federal insurance administrator and Texas insurance commissioner, said, 'Families will have to dig deeper into their pockets because insurers have been steadily increasing hurricane wind
coverage deductibles and imposing other policy limitations.
The Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind
Scale has five levels, with category 5 being the strongest with winds at 252 kilometres per hour or stronger.
They do note that higher sea surface temperatures fuel hurricane winds
, and that climate models project hurricane wind
speeds will increase 3 percent to 5 percent for every I degree Celsius increase in temperature.
Category 1-2 hurricane wind
speed F2 Significant 113-157 Roofs blown off frame houses; mobile homes rolled and/or destroyed, train boxcars pushed over; large trees snapped or uprooted; airborn debris can cause damage.
They had purchased a homeowners' policy from State Farm; they claimed the insurer told them the policy would cover "any and all damage proximately, efficiently, and typically caused by hurricane wind
and 'storm surge' proximately caused by hurricanes." When State Farm declined to pay their claim, saying their loss was a result of a "storm surge, wave wash, and flood," the Tuepkers sued.
The FCMP is a joint venture to develop full-scale experimental methods to quantify near-surface hurricane wind
behavior and resulting loads on residential structures.
The objective of this research was to understand the behavior of metal-plate-connected (MPC) wood truss heel and tension splice joints subjected to dynamic loads that simulated hurricane wind
and impact loads.
The fire stations structures will be wind retrofitted, enabling the structure to withstand hurricane wind
speeds of more than 180 mph.
