Understanding Wind Risk

Massive wind damage to properties during tornadoes and hurricanes is a well-known consequence of a visit from either of these powerful natural hazards. In 2017 alone, wind activity was significantly above the CoreLogic calculated average (2009-2017).

CoreLogic wind verification technology shows 1,128,455 square miles, or approximately 37 percent, of the Continental U.S. (CONUS) were impacted by severe wind gusts, which are defined as 60 mph or greater.

Don’t Throw Caution to the Wind

With our Wind Risk data, you can better understand, measure, and manage the wind risk resulting from many natural hazards such as tornadoes, straight line winds, thunderstorms, hurricanes and special wind areas—in and beyond the obvious tornado risk within Tornado Alley.

Wind Risk Allows You To:

  • Pinpoint a specific property location through 10 x 10 kilometer (6.2 x 6.2 mile) grid cells
  • Evaluate individual addresses or your complete portfolio to understand the risk of wind damage to the properties you insure
  • Identify an accurate likelihood of occurrence for the three major types of damaging winds – straight-line, hurricane and tornado – as well as an aggregate score of all three
  • Used in conjunction with other natural hazard layers from CoreLogic®, you can get a complete picture of all natural hazard risk to help you better price and write individual policies
