San Francisco, CA (October 3, 2022) – Climate Check, Inc., a leading provider of physical and real estate climate risk data, has released detailed, localized data for more than 300 U.S. cities across 43 states. The City Pages data is available via an online searchable database at Search for your city’s page by simply typing the city name into the search box at the top of the page. You can also search by state and individual address.

“We wanted to give regular consumers free access to data that may impact their decisions about how to prepare their homes for climate change,” says ClimateCheck Principal Cal Inman. The company sells property risk analysis to corporate clients.

Each city page ranks drought, heat, fire, flood, and storm risk for the location based on analysis of data from government, academic, and other public and institutional sources, such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Learn more about ClimateCheck’s methodologies.

“Climate change is often regarded as a global issue, with attention centered on large-scale disaster — but it is also a hyper-local issue that poses ongoing and intensifying risks to homes, businesses, and other real estate,” says Inman. “Data can help local governments and individuals identify and prepare for risks. It can also motivate measures that reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

With the City Pages initiative, ClimateCheck furthers its commitment to transparency and accessibility of climate data, as part of our company’s goal to promote understanding of the real and present risks of the climate crisis.

States covered by the first City Pages release include: AL, AR, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, IA, ID, IL, IN, KS, KY, LA, MA, MD, ME, MI, MN, MO, MS, MT, NC, NE, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OH, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA & WI. Additional cities, including cities in other states, will be analyzed for future City Pages releases. Contact for details.
