Harvey, Irma, Jose, Katia and, now, Maria. Headline-snatching hurricanes and tropical thunderstorms are rapidly becoming a dystopian staple. With Texas recovering from the devastating effects of Harvey, Floridians reeling after Irma and Puerto Rico still underwater from Maria, Americans are justifiably consumed by the current hurricane hype. As we send our well-wishes, the whole nation gives our sympathy and unwavering support to the victims of these natural disasters.
