The US was recently hit by devastating back-to-back hurricanes -- Harvey and Irma -- which reportedly left 60 and 36 people dead, respectively, mostly in Texas and Florida.
They also inflicted $180 billion and $172 billion worth of property and economic damage to those regions, according to the ministry. (Yonhap)
