Updated and Improved High-Impact Events Database Cataloging Developed by Western Water Assessment Catalogs Historical Weather and Climate Events in the Intermountain West


Western Water Assessment (WWA), a NOAA RISA team, has recently improved and updated their High-Impact Weather and Climate Events Database. The database is not a scientific dataset, but rather a collection of significant weather and climate-related events in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. The types of events included are: avalanches, cold waves, dam failures, droughts, floods, hail, high winds, landslides, tornadoes, wildfires, and winter storms. WWA searched federal, state, county, and local databases, library archives, news accounts, and other sources to build out this collection.
