A recent story by Jeremy Berke over at www.businessinsider.com goes over the nearly $306 billion dollars of disaster aid and property damage spent in the U.S. for severe weather-related events in 2017. Last year’s events were the costliest year on record for natural disasters in US history and shattered the previous record set in 2005 during the infamous hurricane season of Katrina, Rita, Dennis and Wilma with an inflation adjusted total of $214 billion in damages. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), there were 16 weather related incidents in 2017 alone that each accounted for over $1 billion in damages.
