The article offers information on the National Hurricane Research Initiative proposed by the U.S. National Science Board (NSB). The NSB calls for the Congress to appropriate fund for research on hurricanes and engineering to develop stronger buildings and infrastructure. Estimated annual losses caused by hurricanes averaged $35.8 billion since 2001 according to the NSB initiative. The initiative also emphasizes the importance of understanding the relationship between hurricanes and climate.
