The 2017 Atlantic Hurricane season comes to a close this week, officially ending November 30. It was one of the most active and costliest to hit the United States, with 17 named storms and 10 hurricanes, six of which were major with winds of 110 milers per hour or more. With such monster storms as Harvey, Irma and Maria, many are still struggling physically and mentally in the aftermath. The Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston is now researching the impact of those hurricanes on mental health as it develops a new smart phone app.
