The number of Americans registered for federal disaster aid jumped tenfold this year, costing billions of dollars in additional emergency funding as the nation nears the end of a historically calamitous year. More than 4.7 million Americans - or about 1.4 percent of the population - have registered so far this year for disaster aid from the Federal Emergency Management Agency. In 2016, 480,000 sought aid, and fewer than 180,000 people registered for disaster assistance in each of the three previous years. Three hurricanes - Harvey, Irma and Maria - collectively affected an area with about 8 percent of... [Read More]

The storms churn sea salt up into the air, which NASA can see from space. Hurricanes can be hundreds of miles across, with winds whipping fast enough to rival tornadoes. They can sweep across thousands of miles of ocean before winding down. All this commotion churns up the ocean water, which then injects sea salt into the air in and around the storm. NASA's satellites can detect the amount of salt particles in the atmosphere, and then track those particles across the path of the storm. Here's the result. This video is a time lapse... [Read More]

Construction of new homes in the United States sprang to life in October as hurricane-damaged housing markets recovered from back-to-back late summer storms, according to data released Wednesday. The spike in construction, which also reflected a large increase in apartments in regions not touched by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, was the biggest in a year and followed three consecutive months of declines, the Commerce Department reported. Analysts say supply in the tight US housing market has failed to keep pace with demand and it remained unclear whether the October bounce could be sustained once the storm effects recede....

The White House is sending Congress a $44 billion disaster aid request today that will fall short of demands from hurricane-slammed Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico. Congressional aides briefed on the request required anonymity to discuss it in advance of its release. The request, President Donald Trump's third since hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria slammed the Gulf Coast and Caribbean, would bring the total appropriated for hurricane relief this fall close to $100 billion.
