Third Costliest Year: 2022 left billions of dollars in weather damages

Weather disasters totaled more than $165 billion dollars last year.

That is according to a new report from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. The group found eighteen events caused more than $1 billion dollars in damage including hurricanes, tornadoes, and hail.

Of course, drought and extreme heat were major players in the grand total too, coming in as the second-costliest event at $22 billion.

NOAA says that 2022 was the third costliest year since 1980, since the agency began generating the report.
