The U.S. Census Bureau produces timely local statistics that are critical to Emergency Management, including planning, preparedness, and recovery efforts. Using publicly available and easy-to-use tools, such as OnTheMap for Emergency Management, Census Business Builder: Regional Analyst Edition, and Community Resilience Estimates, the Census Bureau is able to supply hundreds of demographic and economic reports and maps to emergency planners and the public. Past hurricane reports can be found at Emergency Management Events: Hurricanes (2021 back to 2005).

Here are the reports for 2021:

  • 2021 Hurricane Nicholas (September 12, 2021) Texas, Louisiana, and 3 other states. Affected Population: 11,127,864.
