Wind Zone Maps


Wind speed lines have changed because of the improved science (i.e. computer simulations). The updated maps are based on a new and more complete analysis of hurricane characteristics performed over the past 10 years. The wind speed indicated for each wind speed line is different for the 2010 standard due to change in wind speed calculation philosophy. The new wind-borne debris regions (for opening protection) are areas within 1 mile of the coastal mean high water line where the ultimate design wind speed (Vult) is 130 or greater; or in areas where the ultimate design wind speed (Vult) is 140 or greater.
