okay okay i know weather is set by a cycle and pattern and its been proven repeatedly but does anyone else feel like "mother nature" is going through PMS or menopause or just throwing a tantrum over the last three years personally i kinda feel like something is trying to grab our attention.....to be continued
•2010 Haiti Earthquake Jan 12
up to 316,000 casaulties-numbers vary
$13 billion in damage
•2010 Chile(?South American) Earth Quake Feb 27
562 confirmed dead
$15-30 billion in lost money from economy, cost insurance companies 4-7 billion, damage to fisheries 6 billion
•2010 New Zeland Earthquakes
Around $14 million in damage
•2011 Japan Earth Quakes and tsunami
Estimated to be as high as $300 billion in damage.
•2011 Tornado storms involving several states 525 deaths
$28 million in damage(that numbers seems low) estimated to get to $20 billion.
•Flooding in the US 2011
20+383 deaths in storms causing flooding
$2 to 4 billion in damage
And I doubt it's over with hurricane season here-and I think something is already brewing if I heard right, so we will probobly get a tropical storm at least soon-which can still cause severe flooding. But if a big storm formed it could be bad, like a Cat 5...and we've been clear for the last couple of years for the most part.
*the numbers are mostly from wikipedia but they do a good job on some articles in my opinion. Still I'm sure none of the numbers are exact but those are probobly decent ball park numbers.
