In2ThinAir was expecting a major storm end of october-he may be correct. The "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Perfect_Storm_(film)" scenario could unfold for the US East Coast-states. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qM_gi38AhME.

Extreme weather will effect food production, drinking water, logistics.

With the 2017 hurricane season ending in short (from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2017_Atlantic_hurricane_season)

The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season was a hyperactive and extremely destructive season, featuring 17 named storms, ranking alongside 1936 as the fifth-most active season since records began in 1851, and the most active since 2012. The season also featured both the highest total accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) and the highest number of major hurricanes since the 2005 season. All ten of the season's hurricanes occurred in a row, the greatest number of consecutive hurricanes in the satellite era. In addition, it was by far the costliest season on record, with a preliminary total of over $368.66 billion (USD) in damages, which is more than double the cost of 2005’s total, and nearly all of which was due to three of the season's major hurricanes — HarveyIrma, and Maria. This season is also one of only six years on record to feature multiple Category 5 hurricanes, and only the second to feature two hurricanes making landfall at that intensity. This season is the only season on record in which three hurricanes each had an ACE of over 40: Irma, Jose, and Maria.

DJ; Several islands in the Caribean have had that much damage that their economy (often with tourism as a main source of income) will remain serious effected for years or decades. 


Looking at hurricane history and translating the damage to todays cost 2017 has been the most damaging season for the US. With 2005 in third place and 2012 in place 6 there is a trend. Hurricanes can do a lot of (indirect and direct) damage to the US. 

The outlook for the 2018 hurricane season is even worse than the 2017 outcome with more heat in the ocean. http://www.sun-sentinel.com/news/weather/hurricane/fl-reg-hurricane-seasons-ends-20171129-story.html
“Plus, hurricanes are like bananas — they come in bunches,” Masters said. “We saw hurricanes go bananas in 2004 [to] 2005, and it is reasonable to predict that me might see a similar 2-year spike in activity in 2017-2018.”

With the indirect number of people dead due to Maria proberbly far beyond a 1000 in Puerto Rico "Maria" is getting far beyond "Katrina" in duration-and slowly also in still rising death-toll. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Maria#Undercounting_of_fatalities

Still large regions are without electricity and drinking-water. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-12-14/shocking-video-shows-what-everyday-life-puerto-rico-now

The worst part may be the message the US government is sending: We don't care. 

Other hard hit islands in the region do get more help from the "mothecountries" France, UK, Netherlands. When they are independent states also (conditional) help is possible. http://dominicanewsonline.com/news/ Corruption in many regions is-as always-a problem. For Puerto Rico (and the US Virgin Islands) being part of the US is a problem-since the US does not provide enough help-other countries do not want to go into US "home problems".

^DJ, the "bomb cyclones" striking the American North-East (Boston etc.) are similar to hurricanes, and all of these phenomena are being enhanced by global warming and climate change.  

We don't seem to learn our lessons over here very well.  Sad.

CRS,DrPH, you are correct. "Bomb cyclones" are getting very strong-I should rename this item; "Can extreme weather destroy the US" or something like that.

Of course other parts of the globe do get more extreme weather as well-some area's can deal with it much less than the US. (Bangla Desh is one of those countries-a major storm could flood most of that country). 


The US (citizens) can prepare for some extreme weather. Water (almost always-extreme winds could cause otherwise) goes to the lowest point so in case of flooding you better have some low grounds that can deal with large amounts of water. When you build more reservoirs you might be able to deal with dry periods as well. 
When politics fail companies, citizens, can do a lot.
