Summary
Abstract: Global Hazards/Climate Extremes highlights significant weather events around the world by month and year. It is prepared by and available from the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). The Product was first released in 2003 as a framework to summarize weather-related hazards and disasters across the world. Information is presented on a web page that is updated weekly and is focused on the following events: drought, excessive heat, flooding, severe storms, tropical cyclones, extratropical cyclones, and severe winter weather. The information provided is a compilation of media news and other reports accompanied by relevant images, graphs, and documents.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
