http://hisz.rsoe.hu/alertmap/database/index.php?pageid=event_desc&edis_id=FF-20181017-65069-USA DJ-Most likely extreme rain in Alaska might be related to a Pacific hurricane moving north.

With the jetstream being this disrupted it is a matter of time before remnants of hurricanes manage to get to the Arctic and cross it.....

On the Bussines Insider story; hurricane is a name for a sort of storm (in a certain area). It would be better to look at all extreme weather events.

Hurricane Michael: "A Reuters tally of official reports says at least 27 are now confirmed dead - including 17 in Florida. Another death was also confirmed by officials in Georgia, three in North Carolina and six in Virginia."

I do hope that the insurance companies lead the discussion of building standards (and how much/little they will pay if houses are not up to standard....
"The area where the storm hit worst, in Florida's Panhandle region, do not have building code standards as strict as in other areas of the state.

Swathes of houses were completely obliterated in Mexico Beach - an area described as "ground zero" for the storm's heavy winds and storm surges."
