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.

Climate Hazard Brochure Series - Winter Weather

While many associate the southern states with drought and extreme heat, the SCIPP region also experiences crippling and severe winter weather. From ice storms that cut off power to thousands to snowstorms that bring transportation to a standstill, the SCIPP region is no exception to winter's fury

Climate Hazards Brochure Series - Tornadoes

Tornadoes are among the most destructive weather­-related hazards. While tornadoes are most common in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains during the late afternoon, they have occurred in all states, during all months, and during all times of day.

Climate of the Gulf Coast States: An Examination of Climate Change’s Effects Across the Region

As part of a collaboration with several universities and research institutes, SCIPP has produced a report summarizing the changing climate and common weather and climate hazards of the Gulf Coast states (TX, LA, MS, AL, GA, FL). This report is part of a broader package of resources produced in concert with Gulf Coast communities threatened by a growing flood risk in the face of climate change. The primary target audience is city planners, community leaders, and local/state governments seeking deeper knowledge of the region’s climate and broader context for observed local climate trends.
