Fifteen weather-related disasters including hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, floods and freeze events individually caused more than $1 billion in damage in the United States this year, according to a report by the NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information.

These events resulted in the deaths of 282 people.

Hurricane Harvey was the costliest of these disasters, with an estimated $190 billion in damages. Following are hurricanes Irma and Maria, droughts in North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana, and a Minnesota hailstorm in June.

If nothing else occurs by the end of the month, 2017 will have the third most billion-dollar disasters behind 2011 and 2005.
