Policy Research Working Paper 5561:
This paper quantifies hurricane damage caused by climate change across the United States. A damage function is estimated from historic hurricane data to measure the impacts at each location given the storm's strength. A hurricane generator in the Atlantic Ocean is then used to create 5,000 storms with and without climate change. Combining the location and intensity of each storm with the income and population projected for each location, it estimates a detailed picture of how hurricanes will impact each state with and without climate change.
