The U.S. National Weather Service lists five weather hazards likely to threaten areas of North America this fall.

  • Hurricanes--the Atlantic hurricane season typically runs until November 30.
  • Floods--can happen any time after a major rainfall.
  • Tornadoes--still a danger in the fall, particularly in U.S. southern states.
  • Wildfires--continue to pose a threat to the US Southwest and West.
  • Severe winter weather--snow and ice storms can cause an emergency domino effect, as they take out power, make travel hazardous, and lead to a variety of building emergencies from burst pipes, carbon monoxide poisoning, and even collapsed roofs.
