Extreme Weather a Growing Concern After Last Winter's Storms and Ice

Severe weather is happening more often in the U.S., according to nearly two-thirds of survey respondents. Following last winter’s storms, Northeasterners are more likely to believe severe and damaging weather events are becoming more frequent in their part of the country. Fifty-five percent of respondents living in the Northeast say they feel severe weather is becoming more frequent, compared to 36% last year. Only 34% of Americans think that severe weather increases the likelihood of damage to their property.
