Caribbean Casualties due to Hurricanes, 2004


This map shows the number of casualties in the Caribbean and Florida caused by hurricanes and tropical storms. The circles indicate the average number of deaths per year between 1980 and 2000, and the color of the circles shows the number of deaths per million people exposed per year.

Graphs comparing the affected deforestation rates and the human development rates are additionally provided.

Due to the disaster caused by the hurricane season, the tourist industry, one of the primary revenues of income in the Caribbean, was negatively affected.
