"Very few parts of the U.S. have been untouched by extreme weather.
According to a recent report, 90% of U.S. counties had a federally declared weather disaster between 2011 and 2021.
“Some counties have had as many as 12 disasters during that time,” says Amy Chester of Rebuild by Design. Her group recently released the Atlas of Disaster, an online map of these events.
“And the one thing that we found extraordinarily interesting is that no matter what state you look at, disasters are all over. It’s not just a coastal issue in a coastal state,” she says."
