The 18 disasters are tied for third-most in a year, behind only 2021 and 2020. The total damages for the 18 events reached about $165 billion, with Hurricane Ian accounting for $112.9 billion.

Other hurricanes brought vast damage, as well. Hurricane Fiona delivered 12-18 inches of rain to Puerto Rico, while Hurricane Ian brought 150-mph winds to southwest Florida. Hurricane Nicole was the first hurricane to hit the United States during November in nearly 40 years.

According to NOAA, 2022 was also an above-average tornado year…”  (Jesus said: And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring;  Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.  And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.  And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh–  Luke 21:25 – 28.)
