Storm Damage Grid

This grid is created by the Storm disturbance behavior. Each grid cell holds a storm damage index between 0 and 1. The grid resolution default is 8 m X 8 m. You can change this to whatever you wish, but if you are also using the grid Storm Susceptibility, the resolutions must match.
