Climate change has influenced the means and extremes of weather throughout the world (Ward, 2013). Extreme weather, including storms, cold weather, ice storms, hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes and extreme heat, and wildfires (Kenward & Raja, 2014), is expected to increase in frequency, intensity, and duration as a result of the continual increase in global greenhouse gas concentrations causing climate warming (Panteli & Mancarella, 2015). Extreme weather poses multiple threats, including disrupting food and water supplies, increasing mortality, and damaging critical infrastructure.
