HurreconR: Models Hurricane Wind Speed, Wind Direction, and Wind Damage

The HURRECON model estimates wind speed, wind direction, enhanced Fujita scale wind damage, and duration of EF0 to EF5 winds as a function of hurricane location and maximum sustained wind speed. Results may be generated for a single site or an entire region. Hurricane track and intensity data may be imported directly from the US National Hurricane Center's HURDAT2 database. For details on the original version of the model written in Borland Pascal, see: Boose, Chamberlin, and Foster (2001) <doi:10.1890/0012-9615(2001)071[0027:LARIOH]2.0.CO;2> and Boose, Serrano, and Foster (2004) <doi:10.1890/02-4057>.
