Wind Hazard Zones for Louisiana.
The wind hazard zones for Louisiana are shown in the Wind Speed Map. Minimum design standards for wind loading have been developed by the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and are referenced in the International Building Code and International Residential Code at the International Code Council (ICC) website http://www.iccsafe.org.
Wind affects different homes in different ways, depending on their design, location and neighboring structures.
