    If the first three months of the year are any indication, 2017 is already shaping up as a disastrous and costly one for weather in the U.S.

    Five separate weather disasters in the U.S. each caused at least $1 billion in damage through March, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a report released Thursday.

    That's the highest tally on record for so early in the year and twice the average of 2.4 disasters, said NOAA, which has data going back to 1980.
