FLORENCE: Slow-moving Hurricane Florence made landfall in North Carolina Sept. 14, then lingered over the region, causing catastrophic flooding, including prolonged significant river flooding, to the Carolina coast and inland. More than 40 people in the Carolinas and Virginia were killed.
MICHAEL: Then fast-moving Hurricane Michael struck the Florida Panhandle Sept. 10, keeping its strength as it careened northward, causing tremendous destruction. It weakened to a tropical storm only after reaching Central Georgia. Next stop: Carolinas and Virginia.
MANGKHUT: At least 134 people are dead and dozens more feared buried in a landslide in the Philippines due to Typhoon Mangkhut (local name Ompong), which destroyed shelters and livelihoods including crops. The equivalent of a Category 5 hurricane, Typhoon Mangkhut also battered Hong Kong, China and other parts of Asia.
