Billion-Dollar Weather and Climate Disasters: Mapping

To better visualize the spatial dimensions of Billion-dollar weather and climate events, below is an interactive event frequency mapping tool. This interface provides a customizable range of years and disaster types, to help visualize how disaster costs change over space and time. A dynamic summary of the Billion-dollar disaster events is also refreshed as the map selection is updated.

Please note that the map reflects a summation of billion-dollar events for each state affected (i.e., it does not mean that each state shown suffered at least $1 billion in losses for each event).
