Hurricane Damages and Effects. July 08 PM EDT (Thinkstock) Although storm surge is perhaps the most dangerous and . Hurricane Hugo struck Puerto Rico in , Francis and Gillespie () found that trees were more damaged with increasing wind gust speed and increasing diameter. Palms were significantly more resistant to wind than broad-leaved trees. After Hurricane Georges in Puerto Rico, Francis () found a correlation between tree size and defoliation and.
Little is known about ecosystem-level responses to multiple, climatic disturbance events. In the subtropical forests of Puerto Rico, the major natural disturbances are hurricanes and droughts. We tested the ecosystem-level effects of these disturbances in sites with different land use histories. From to , data were collected to determine the effects of Hurricane Hugo and two droughts.

House. Committee on Agriculture. Hurricane Hugo added more than 1 million acres to South Carolina's backlog of acreage needing regeneration. Citation: Sheffield, Raymond M.; Thompson, Michael T. Hurricane Hugo Effects on South Carolina''s Forest by: affected by Hurricane Hugo.
It also provides estimates of the losses of softwood and hardwood timber volumes. Additional data on damage are in appendix C. More Than Million Acres Damaged The reinventory indicates that million acres, or two-thirds of the million acres of timberland in the 23 counties, were damaged by Hurricane Hugo ( by: The hurricane season had a total of 11 named tropical cyclones of which 7 attained hurricane strength.
Hurricane Hugo, a Category 4 hurricane at landfall, was a classic Cape Verde-type hurricane that devastated the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, and South and North Carolina.
Developing from a cluster of thunderstorms off the coast of Africa on September 9,Hugo steadily intensified. Posts about hurricane effects written by Michele Bartram, U.S. Government Online Bookstore Government Book Talk Talking about some of the best publications from. the Francis Marion National Forest, received the full brunt of the storm.
This paper will examine both short-term and long-term effects of Hurricane Hugo on wildlife populations in South Carolina. Some long-term effects are speculative since it may require sev eral years or more to fully understand these effects.
Analysis will be confined to. Goals / Objectives Our study aims to predict the long-term effects of Hurricane Hugo on forest ecosystems using field and remotely sensed data of forest structure and processes together with forest succession models. Specifically, we will (a) investigate the long-term forest community dynamics in coastal SC forests following Hurricane Hugo by continuing to collect and analyze field data; (b.

The book was received in very good shape, as described, especially since it's twenty three years old. I previously had this volume but have no idea what may have happenned to it. I endured this hurricane on Garden City Beach in South Carolina, but memories fade and the stories and pictures keep it s: 4.
Hugo is the 11th most intense hurricane to hit the United States. At the time, the US hadn’t seen a hurricane as strong as Hugo since Camille inwhich had hit Mississippi twenty years earlier.
Not only was Hugo intense, it was also fast. Keywords: Economic welfare, Hurricane Hugo, Hurricane Katrina, timber salvage, tropical cyclone.
Introduction This paper provides a description of the hurricane process in the United States in the context of economic impacts on forest land owners, presents the welfare theoretic model used to quantify timber market impacts, describes and.
Forest Service researchers have developed an adaptive strategy to help natural resource managers in the southeastern United States both prepare. the hurricane, and a decline in forest management activities. Sixty-five years after the hurricane, subtle but significant differences in structure that were correlated with damage from the hurricane were found in the Harvard Forest using LiDAR data (Weishampel et al., ).
Hurricane Hugo reached the coast of South Carolina, USA near. Hurricane Hugo made landfall in South Carolina in September ofas a Category 4 hurricane.
According to Southern Forests, almost four years’ worth of timber was destroyed in 24 hours. The combination of mile-per-hour winds and storm surges of salt water from the Atlantic damaged roughly million acres of forest in South Carolina.
Field observations for this report were made while the author was a member of the Hurricane Hugo postdisaster study team sponsored by the National Research Council's Committee on Natural Disasters. Field work in Puerto Rico was done from September 21 to.
FIRE MANAGEMENT RAMIFICATIONS OF HURRICANE HUGO1 J. Saveland and D. Wade2 ABSTRACT: Hurricane Hugo passed over the Francis Marion National Forest on Septemremoving almost 75 percent of the overstory.
The radically altered fuel bed presented new and formidable challenges to fire managers. Hurricanes can also have major impacts on the structure and function of coastal forest and wetland ecosystems.
Coastal forest ecosystems, including upland forests, mangrove swamps, hardwood hammocks, and forested wetlands often sustain substantial damage from hurricane winds, which can uproot trees and completely defoliate vegetation. Hurricane-induced storm surge can also transport.
Project Methods I will continue to study effects of alternative management practices and natural disturbances on forest insect populations and communities. Long-term responses of insects to hurricane and other disturbances are being investigated in tropical rainforest at the Luquillo Experimental Forest in Puerto Rico (Schowalter and Ganio) and in lowland hardwood forest along the.

Hofeldt U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Sawtooth National Recreation Area, Ketchum, ID David H. Van Lear. Caribbean tropical forests are subject to hurricane impacts of great variability. In addition to natural storm incongruity, climate change can alter storm formation, duration, frequency, and.
Hurricane Hugo, which made landfall near Charleston, South Carolina as a major hurricane, struck the Southeastern United States on Septem The devastation was widespread. but the U.S. was not the only nation to experience the lashes of Hurricane Hugo. Hurricane Hugo was a destructive Category 5 hurricane that struck Guadeloupe, Montserrat, St.
Croix, Puerto Rico, South Carolina. Out at sea, the winds of Hurricane Hugo roared at mph. At that time, Hugo was classified as a category 5 storm.
It moved from the Caribbean to the U.S wreaking havoc along the way. Once ashore it became a category 4. Hurricane force winds of up to mph extended miles northeast and 50 miles south.Hurricane Hugo struck the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico on Septem, causing extensive damage to the coast of Puerto Rico.
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Office of Energy and Marine Geology, Atlantic Branch of Marine Geology is coordinating studies of the impact of major storm events on the coastal resources of Puerto Rico.
