On 6 October 2017 The Associated Press reported:
Howling winds, deadly floods, fire, and ice so far this year have pushed the U.S. into a tie for weather disasters that topped $1 billion in damages. There have been 15 costly disasters through September, tying 2011 for the most billion-dollar weather disasters for the first nine months of a year. The record for a year is 16, and the hurricane season is not over yet. Between 1980 and 2007, the U.S. averaged only four billion-dollar disasters per year. In the decade since, the country has averaged 11 per year. ...'Climate change is impacting extreme weather in ways we hadn't anticipated,' Michael Mann of Pennsylvania State University said in an email. But an even bigger factor is that more people moving into harm's way 'has created massive amounts of exposure in regions prone to severe weather events,' said Mark Bove, a meteorologist at insurance giant Munich Re.
