The US Govt. has roughly 1600 locations that collect weather-related information every few minutes, mainly for aviation purposes. Wind-speed is part of that. A mashup of that with satellite feeds, Google Maps and a few other things, leads to our offer below.
Crudely speaking, wind-speeds exceeding 100 mph are able to damage property, uproot trees, etc. If there is a wind-storm near a house, it may of course damage the house, but it may also knock down trees, force evacuations, damage schools and daycare centers, swamp roofers with business, etc. –many of which are not covered by homeowner policies.
“If wind speeds recorded by a US weather station within 20 miles of your house exceed 100 mph, we will immediately send you $10,000.”
