Abstract: The aim of this article is to study the phenomena associated with strong wind and compound events where this hazard intervenes in the region of North Girona. Of the two blocks in which this work is divided, the first one focuses on the synthesis of the literature about the most common winds in L'Empordà, floods and compound events. The second one focuses on the analysis of the situations that have affected the area based on rainfall (1950-2015), wind (1997-2018) and coastal storm (1973-2013) data provided by the M-CostAdapt project. The compound events that have been taken into account are the combination of two or three of these hazards. In total, 116 compound events took place between 1997 and 2013, mainly in September and October. The most common type was composed by heavy rain and Tramuntana wind, with a maximum wind gust between 45 and 75 Km/h. One of the strongest storms that affected Catalonia in recent years, storm Gloria, has also been analyzed
