Recent Work for NPR: America's Most Expensive Storms

Here are two simple charts I made for a recent post on America's most expensive storms. 

It's interesting that we continue to speak about storms and their destruction in dollar amounts. The National Hurricane Center had published two different data sets that ranked America's costliest storms in two ways: one compared storms by inflation-adjusted damages they caused; the other data set compared storms by how much damage they would have done if they had hit the same areas with the same magnitude in 2010. 

You can read more about the data here.
