In preparation for the 2008 hurricane season, WeatherFlow has completed the initial phase of installing its hurricane-hardened weather stations throughout Florida, primarily in the state’s coastal regions and around Orlando. The provider of weather observation data and forecasting models has partnered with Risk Management Solutions (RMS), a hurricane risk modeling firm, to develop the WindX parametric index, for which the stations will collect location-specific wind speed values.

“More than 50 stations designed to withstand and accurately record winds exceeding 140 miles per hour have been planted across Florida,” said Buck Lyons, CEO of WeatherFlow. “Eight stations have also been installed in Houston, Texas.”
