ln Hertford, Hereford and Hampshire hurricanes hardly ever happen

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."

https://www.wunderground.com/news/storms/hurricane/news/2018-10-22-hurricane-willa-pacific-ocean-mexico-landfall and https://www.nhc.noaa.gov/?epac

MrMBB333 is comparing https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Patricia#United_States with "Willa" on its way to NW Mexico.

DJ-Both "Vicente" and "Willa" will do a lot of damage in western Mexico. Stronger storms are one of many signs of (rapid) climate change. This climate crisis is not caused by the poor but they are expected to bear the suffering. https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-10-22/president-trump-declares-national-emergency-mexico-loses-control-migrant-army

"The poor" have every reason to bring the bill to those who did cause the problems. Oil companies, military-industrial-complex, will have to pay for the damage they are doing.

Climate fefugees are another climate-change related problem going to explode (both for the US and EU).

DJ;

Robert Scribler https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R6iU20YZFME
Willa slammed into the coast of Mexico as a category 3 hurricane yesterday producing widespread impacts. The remnants of the storm are now moving over Northeast Mexico -- funneling heavy rains into an already severe weather pattern across Texas. Over the next few days, this area of stormy weather is expected to track east -- potentially becoming a Nor'easter by the weekend.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHk1jX8YpG8
Yutu is presently raking the northern Marianas islands with winds gusting to near 220 mph. This storm is of a class comparable to the most powerful cyclones ever observed on the face of the Earth. It goes without saying that the small islands in Yutu's path will see devastating impacts.


MrMBB333; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjmTX50tq5U and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Walaka#Preparations_and_impact:
A powerful storm surge accompanied the hurricane as it traversed the French Frigate Shoals. The small, low-lying East Island suffered a direct hit and was completely destroyed, with sediment scattered across coral reefs to the north.

DJ-There was/is a discussion on category 6 hurricanes. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saffir%E2%80%93Simpson_scale and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saffir%E2%80%93Simpson_scale#%22Category_6%22.
With storms ever getting stronger for science reasons new scales may be usefull. Both extreme events (wind, rain, surge) as duration (drought, several days of rain) can bring severe damage. They are not always included in a "scale".
