This repository consists of the data used for the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society paper entitled "Surface Pressure a More Skillful Predictor of Normalized Hurricane Damage than Maximum Sustained Wind". Three files are included:
1. All CONUS landfalling hurricanes used in this analysis, including their landfall location, maximum sustained wind speed at landfall, minimum sea level pressure at landfall and normalized damage that resulted.
2. A list of all CONUS landfalling hurricanes from the Klotzbach et al. (2018) dataset which were not included in this analysis. The Klotzbach et al. (2018) dataset consisted of all continental US landfalling hurricanes since 1900 and included multiple landfalls by the same hurricane as long as they were 100 miles apart from a prior landfall.
3. A list of all CONUS landfalling hurricanes since 1988 with their associated landfall location, direct fatalities, arithmetic average of four-quadrant 50-kt wind radii, maximum sustained wind and minimum sea level pressure at landfall.
