Climate Hazard Brochure Series - Drought

Drought is one of the most common and costly hazards to impact the United States. In contrast to most hazards, drought can impact any state, or a majority of states, at any given time of the year. Moreover, drought is not a stranger to people in the SCIPP Region.

Climate Hazard Brochure Series - Flash Flooding

Over the past 30 years, flash flooding was responsible for the highest number of weather related fatalities within the United States (NOAA). On average, more U.S. property damage is due to floods than any other weather related disaster (NOAA). Similar to drought and tornados, flash floods occur in all states and can occur at all times of the year. Some states within the SCIPP region, such as Texas, are particularly susceptible to flash floods.

Climate Hazard Brochure Series - Hurricanes

The United States Gulf Coast is one of the most susceptible regions to the hazards of hurricanes, namely high wind and flooding due to storm surge. Further inland a hurricane and its remnants can produce excessive rainfall, the threat of tornadoes, and cause various other impacts to infrastructure, transportation, and commerce.
