Michael bashed the Florida
Panhandle this week, utterly destroying several gulf-front communities. At least three deaths were blamed on Michael, the most powerful hurricane to hit the continental U.S. in over 50 years, and it wasn’t done yet: Though reduced to a tropical storm, it brought flash flooding to North Carolina and Virginia, soaking areas still recovering from Florence, according to the Associated Press.

As the historically bad weather continues to destroy American communities on a nearly yearly basis, we have to begin to belief that this is not just the routine weather that some climate change skeptics may believe.
