The latest CAT
Extreme weather continues to hit the U.S.
September 15, 2020
Sally, the seventh hurricane of the 2020 Atlantic season, is crawling toward the Gulf Coast as a category 1. The storm is currently located about 105 miles south-southeast of Biloxi, Mississippi, and is anticipated to make landfall on Wednesday near the Mississippi and Alabama border. Sally's slow movement could result in life-threatening, human-height storm surge and historic flooding along the Gulf Coast. Flooding rainfall also threatens farther inland across parts of the Southeast. Damaging winds could contribute to some structural damage, downed trees and power outages.
West Coast wildfires
More than 16,000 firefighters are battling 28 major wildfires across California, where nearly a month of hot, dry weather has fueled flames. An estimated 3.2 million acres have burned in 2020, destroying more than 4,200 structures and breaking records for poor air quality. Fires extend to Oregon where crews are battling to contain more than 30 fires that have scorched more than 1 million acres. In southwest Washington and northwest Oregon, dense smoke advisories warn the visibility is less than one mile.
