The year 2017 will be remembered my many as a year of extremes. Local weather anomalies caused massive flooding and mudslides in South America. Wildfires spread across arid lands, consuming forests, leveling buildings, and causing unprecedented loss of life in Europe and America. Two deadly earthquakes struck Mexico in separate locations just weeks apart. And a series of record breaking hurricanes battered the Caribbean one after another in an onslaught of devastation. Eyewitnesses describe what happened while experts explain the science behind these events.
