    Wind Borne Debris Region / Wind Speed Map - Florida

    Wind Borne Debris Region / Wind Speed Map - Florida

    New postby Jerry Peck - Codeman on Fri Apr 03, 2009 11:49 am

    The attached Wind Borne Debris Region / Wind Speed Map for Florida is from http://www.FloridaBuilding.org and is from the Florida Building Codes.

    I have added the routes of some major roadways to the map as an aid for referencing the location of the wind speed demarcation lines to physical landmarks - the major roadways.

    This should help with locating an affected property or area as to the requirements applicable to that property or area.

    In reading the wind speeds for design and application, the wind speed lines represent that wind speed and higher, thus, the 100 mph wind speed line and the area between that 100 mph line and the 110 mph line indicates the areas where the design wind speed should be based on 110 mph minimum requirements.

    Likewise, the 110 mph line and the area between that 110 mph line and the 120 mph line indicates the areas where the design wind speed should be based on 120 mph minimum requirements.

    The wind-borne debris region starts at the 120 mph wind speed line and greater wind speeds. The wind-borne debris area is shown on the map in blue tint, in a few areas which are coastal and not at the 120 mph line, there is a wind-borne debris area which covers the area within one (1) mile of the coast.
