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.
