On the Radar

It’s been an extraordinarily turbulent first half of 2023. A steady string of storms has caused death, destruction, and displacement. In a new segment, “On the Radar,” IBHS experts give their take on recent severe weather and its impact on the built environment.

In this episode, IBHS Lead Research Meteorologist Dr. Ian Giammanco and Senior Meteorologist Sarah Dillingham join us with their observations and analysis on why severe convective storms have caused so much havoc this year. They also provide mitigation strategies and share details on how we can build better to prevent avoidable suffering and loss. We wrap up with a look ahead to the 2023 hurricane season and offer tips on how you can be hurricane ready.
