Hurricane Michael made landfall in Florida on October 10, 2018. According to Wikipedia.org "at least 74 deaths were attributed to the storm, including 59 in the United States and 15 in Central America. Michael caused an estimated $25.1 billion (2018 USD) in damages, including $100 million in economic losses in Central America, damage to U.S. fighter jets with a replacement cost of approximately $6 billion at Tyndall Air Force Base, and at least $6.23 billion in insurance claims in the U.S. Losses to agriculture alone exceeded $3.87 billion." A monster for sure.
I am a monster
I have to be obeyed
beware of my wrath
