R Dataset / Package DAAG / hurricNamed
Named US Atlantic Hurricanes
Details are given of atmospheric pressure at landfall, estimated damage in millions of dollars, and deaths, for named hurricanes that made landfall in the US mainland from 1950 through to 2012.
A data frame with 94 observations on the following 11 variables.
Maximum sustained windspeed (>= 1 minute) to occur along the US coast. Prior to 1980, this is estimated from the maximum windspeed associated with the Saffir-Simpson index at landfall. If 2 or more landfalls, the maximum is taken
Atmospheric pressure at landfall in millibars. If 2 or more landfalls, the minimum is taken
Date of first landfall
Property damage (millions of 2014 US dollars)
Property damage (in millions of dollars for that year)
Damage, had hurricane appeared in 2014
Affected states (2-digit abbreviations), pasted together
Date of first landfall
Number of continental US direct and indirect deaths
Gender of name; a factor with levels
An earlier version of these data was the subject of a controversial paper that claimed to have found that hurricanes with female names, presumably because taken less seriously, did more human damage after adjusting for the severity of the storm than those with male names.
http://www.icatdamageestimator.com/ Deaths except for Audrey and Katrina, are in the Excel file that is available from http://www.pnas.org/content/suppl/2014/05/30/1402786111.DCSupplemental NOAA Monthly Weather Reports (MWRs) supplied the numbers of deaths for all except Donna, Celia, Audrey and Katrina. The figure for Celia is from http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/pdf/NWS-TPC-5.pdf. For the other three hurricanes it is from the Atlantic hurricane list in Wikipedia (see the references.)
