An estimated one in three Americans experienced a weather-related disaster this summer, including hurricanes, tornados, flash flooding and fires. Hurricane Ida barreled into Louisiana on August 29 and made its way Northeast, killing an estimated 82 people, and setting the stage for one of the costliest U.S. mainland hurricanes on record. Meanwhile, July ranked as the hottest month since record-keeping began. California’s Dixie Fire, which began that month, consumed nearly 725,000 acres, making it the second largest such event in state history.
