Natural disasters due to climate change will destroy 50% of buildings in the United States

American scientists have found that half of all buildings in the United States are located in areas most vulnerable to natural disasters. The research is published in the journal Earth’s Future.

The study found that more than half of buildings in the US are located in areas prone to natural disasters. This is tantamount to the fact that millions of homes, businesses and other buildings are at risk of hurricanes, floods, wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes and other disasters.

According to scientists, climate change is affecting these numbers and the likelihood of extreme weather events is increasing.

In their work, scientists created a plan for “hot spots” in the United States and compared them with old buildings in 1945. It turned out that, despite all attempts by scientists to warn of possible disasters, people continue to actively build up dangerous areas.

Risks are mostly limited to the east coast and states around the Gulf of Mexico, where hurricanes are particularly common.
