16. Yep and you know what else?

Hurricane season is just getting warmed up.

In 2004, more than eight tropical cyclones brushed or struck the United States. Altogether, they added to more than $61 billion in damages. Four hurricanes struck Florida that year: Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.

The 2005 five season was the most active in recorded history, with seven major hurricanes, four of which were Category 5. The season's grand total in damages was $171.7 billion.

Considering the current financial state, the civil unrest and the pandemic, having an Andrew or Katrina cut through the COVID-wracked southeast right now would greatly add to the atmosphere of destabilization.
