Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 hurricane with wind-speeds of more than 180mph struck Florida in 2017, leaving 39 dead and a damage of more than 50 billion dollars. Hurricane Matthew, a Category 5 hurricane with wind-speeds of 160mph, struck Haiti one year earlier in 2016, leaving 546 dead and a cost of 1.9 billion dollars. How can two such similar hurricanes have such different impact?
