A database aiming at studying storm impact on the French Basque coast and covering the period 1949–2015 is presented in this paper Wave and water level data originate from synthetic or numerical hindcast complemented by buoys or tide gauge measurements. A statistical validation of each variable and, when needed, a distribution correction of biased variables was carried out. The constructed database will be used in confrontation with an historical review of past storm damages to try to find a statistical link between the two though a damage function.
