Hurricanes can wreck havoc when they make landfall, especially over developing island states. This destructive power was clearly seen in last years hurricane activity for many of the Caribbean Islands, which saw extreme winds, huge storm surges, widespread inland flooding and landslides. While Bristol are world leaders at modelling these hazards, we have yet to apply them in a comprehensive way to hurricanes. The CRISIS team will provide a thorough hazard assessment of last years hurricanes, putting Bristol in a strong position to lead future, more comprehensive risks assessments during active hurricane periods.
