Ambee, a climate intelligence company that supplies actionable environmental and climate data in real-time, has launched a new API to alert users of severe weather events such as hurricanes, storms, and heatwaves. Ambee’s severe weather alerts API can help users to take precautions, build necessary solutions, and, most of all, prepare for the future.

Hurricanes, heatwaves, wildfires, floods, and other extreme weather conditions cause considerable losses to societies and individuals worldwide. 70% of businesses worldwide experience disruption in operations and finances due to abnormal weather events. It is critical to consider the causes of these events, as well as their relationship to climate change and how various environmental factors interact with one another.
