For statistics, see EM-DAT International Disasters Database which contains essential core data on the occurrence and effects of over 18,000 mass disasters in the world from 1900 to present.
Also see SHELDUS. County-level hazard loss data set for the U.S. for 18 different natural hazard events types such thunderstorms, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, and tornadoes. For each event the database includes the beginning date, location (county and state), property losses, crop losses, injuries, and fatalities that affected each county. Does not include Puerto Rico, Guam, or other U.S. territories. Access requires a Princeton email account. Subscriptions only provide access to aggregated data. Aggregation is currently not available for named events, PDDs, and GLIDEs.
Also see the international environmental data section of the Environment Guide for additional sources.
