The storm that hit the United States in the early hours of September 11, 2001, was a watershed moment for America.
It marked a new era in American democracy, and the global response was swift and effective.
But it also heralded a new kind of catastrophe: an unprecedented, catastrophic, global catastrophe.
It is no longer merely the most recent in a series of catastrophes.
There has been a catastrophic, catastrophic shift in the way we live, the way our society functions, and how our lives are managed.
The crisis is happening before our eyes and yet it is not a crisis at all.
In a world that is increasingly globalized, a new world of extreme weather is coming, and a new and increasingly unprecedented way of life is taking shape.
The catastrophe will have many names, but the essence is the same.
We are entering a new, unprecedented period in American history.
The storm that killed over 3,000 people and devastated the country was unprecedented.
It broke new national and global records, and it shook the very foundations of our country.
During the day, it was one of the most destructive natural disasters in American memory.
The storm caused millions of dollars in damage and destroyed thousands of homes and businesses.
For weeks, we saw thousands of bodies, bodies that we thought were from one of America’s great natural disasters.
When the storm first hit the Gulf Coast, I was on vacation in Florida, and as we were sitting in the sun, a friend in New York City told me that the wind was blowing on a roof, that a roof that we were standing on was coming down.
The first time I heard this word, I cried.
On the evening of September 12, 2001 we saw an ominous picture of the hurricane that hit our country, as a tornado passed over our city of Miami, killing more than 2,000 and damaging more than a quarter of a million homes.
We saw the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, and Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
We watched as more than $100 billion in federal disaster aid was withdrawn from our economy, and we saw the destruction of homes, neighborhoods, and communities.
This storm was also one of many natural disasters that the United State has experienced in the last 30 years.
The number of natural disasters, as measured by the United Nations Office for Disaster Risk Reduction, has increased from 4,732 in 1980 to 6,976 in 2010, and this number is projected to double in the next decade.
The world is in the midst of an unprecedented wave of severe weather events, from droughts to floods to hurricanes, with the most severe weather occurring around the world.
In many ways, this is the most important natural disaster of our time, because we have entered a new phase in our history, the era of extreme and catastrophic weather.
Inevitably, we have a sense of urgency.
As a country, we must act immediately to prepare and to mitigate the effects of this storm and the others that are likely to follow.
While we are in this period of unprecedented climate change, it is important to note that it is a new normal.
For the first time in our nation’s history, there are a number of significant climate change indicators on the National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction Center website, including temperature, precipitation, and sea surface temperature.
These trends indicate that the average temperatures in the U.S. are increasing.
This is a change that is not entirely new.
The temperature rise has been accompanied by changes in precipitation, as well as other climate variables, like cloud cover and rainfall.
However, as we move into this new normal, it will be increasingly difficult to predict precisely what these trends will mean in the future.
The changes that have been happening are now occurring on a much larger scale, and are taking place across the nation.
As we move toward a future in which we are not only the global capital of climate change but also the world’s largest source of carbon emissions, we need to prepare.
If you live in a metropolitan area, prepare to be inundated by a sea of water that is rising rapidly in many parts of the country.
The water is also rising due to the warming of the planet.
As climate change causes more extreme weather, we are facing an unprecedented and potentially catastrophic wave of water, flooding, and power outages.
Floods are already occurring more often than they were before the crisis hit the U, and they will continue to do so in the coming years.
If you live within a metropolitan region, prepare for massive flooding, especially if you live on the coast.
Flooding and power shortages can occur in a number or locations, depending on the intensity of the storms.
If a storm is moving east or west, expect to see a greater chance of flash flooding and flash-flooding along the coast of the U., as well.
And if you’re a suburban or rural resident, you should be prepared for major power outage as well,
