Natural disasters were present in all forms in the United States during the year 2017. Right from the wildfires to several hurricanes, the nation has seen it all. Not only did these disasters cost several lives, but figuratively, 2017 was the costliest in US history in terms of natural disasters.
This figure has been calculated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI). The latter carries out evaluations of severe weather events which affect both the US and abroad, economically as well as socially.
