AIR Worldwide, a risk model software and consulting services provider, has released the latest version of its Hurricane Model Version 12.0 for the United States. The new version features updated hazard and vulnerability components, including a full 4-D structural blueprint of a hurricane, and can dictate knowledge of the “development of the storm footprint over time, the rate of the decrease in wind speed moving away from the eye of a hurricane, and the relationship between upper-level and surface winds,” AIR said.

Certified by the Florida Commission on Hurricane Loss Projection Methodology, the new model includes the latest from the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Land Use Land Cover (LULC) data published in 2007. Illinois, Indiana and Missouri, have been added to the list of covered states, which brings the number up to 29 states and Washington, D.C.
