Abstract

A probabilistic model, based on Poisson random measure theory, is developed for predicting windborne debris damage in residential areas. It is intended for incorporation into improved methodology to estimate economic losses due to hurricanes to individual houses or entire residential developments. A sample application to a coastal housing development is provided.
