This video visualizes a century of tropical storm destruction in one minute.
Amazing work by Aslak Grinstead.
Damages are framed in terms of an equivalent Area of Total Destruction. How large an land area do you have to completely destroy to account for the reported economic damages for each event.
I made it using matplotlib for the visuals, and mido plus my favourite daw (@reasonstudios) for the audio.
