Last year’s hurricane season hammered the southeastern United States, causing major damage to homes and businesses in multiple states and territories. For the first time ever recorded in National Weather Service history, three hurricanes classified as Category 4 – Harvey, Irma and Maria – made landfall in the United States. This record-breaking hurricane activity also made September of 2017 the most active month ever recorded in the history Atlantic hurricanes. Naturally, the 2017 hurricane season was also the costliest season on record. And while the numbers are still coming in, preliminary damages are said to amount to approximately $292.23 billion.
