Why consider only floods, storms, and cyclones?

Answer

According to UNODR (UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction), Floods and storms were the most common types of climate-related events accounting for approximately 44% and 28% of all climate-related events from 2000 to 2019. Furthermore, UNODR reported that flood events have more than doubled while that of storms grew by 40% in the same period.

 Additionally, the field of research regarding damage functions is currently concentrated around floods, storms, and cyclones. We are looking to expand the scope to cover more physical risks in the future; for example, work is in progress currently for heat stress.
