Storms & Hurricanes by Jorge Martinez Rey

Tropical storms and hurricanes are one of the extreme climate events that have major impact on low latitudinal regions. These extreme events contribute significantly to the climate hazards in addition to climate change on highly vulnerable regions.
In this data visualization we can spot the hurricanes and tropical storms that have impacted different Caribbean archipelagos from 2004 to 2017 thanks to the HURDAT database and the MGClimDeX Project. Each shape corresponds to the radius of the 34 knots wind speed contour within the hurricane every twelve hours.
