Among the first to feel the impact of climate change will be coastal communities, which will have to put in place policies to deal with rising seas, more intense storms, and more frequent floods. Otherwise, a lot of homes, businesses and infrastructure will be damaged or destroyed, and people will die. Just ask the folks in New Orleans gearing up for another hurricane season.

1999 September 17–18 Hurricane Floyd – After paralleling much of the U.S. East Coast, Tropical Storm Floyd moves into Connecticut, and tracks northward through Maine. Floyd causes large power outages and flood damage across the region, with over five inches (130 mm) of rain falling over most of the area.

Hurricanes suck. (In 1999, Hurricane Floyd brought devastation to North Carolina. Flood waters surrounded Hardee's corporate headquarters in Rocky Mount, N.C.)
