Last year, hurricanes pummeled both the East Coast and Gulf Coast, causing major damage to cities all over the Southeast United States. For the first time ever recorded, three Category 4 hurricanes – Harvey, Irma and Maria – made landfall in the United States, making September of 2017 the most active month on record for Atlantic hurricanes. The 2017 hurricane season also featured the highest number of major hurricanes in one season since 2005 and was, beyond question, the costliest season on record, amounting to approximately $292.23 billion in preliminary damages.
