natural disasters and tourism
lists natural disasters in the US that had an impact of $1B or more.

If we had a good data base of state-level tourism spending for that time period we could do a nice interrupted time series model to estimate the impact of natural disasters on tourism. With 1030 observations (50 states X 26 years) there would be enough degrees of freedom to include state and year dummies (as well as macro-economic trends).

If interested, let me know.
