Yes. It's all futility, Michelle.
Despite the fact that we have absolutely no power to control of influence the weather, you will continually encounter specially trained climatologists here who will say things like "...by reducing warming, we can reduce the number and severity of both. If we don't, we'll just have to get used to more destruction."
...Convection, thundercell formation, sometimes tornadoes, winds, heavy rain, hail, and destruction all occur without any influence of man. They happen because it's summer, and the conditions for formation are favorable. Those hurricanes and typhoons that (have always) plagued Japan and asia occur through similar (although much larger scale) mechanics at sea.
Oddly enough, we can't do a thing about them. They just happen, and we monitor, and try to keep people safe by helping them avoid it all. We can't get rid of them, and curiously enough, not a one has ever had any indication that man made it.
How could we make those things happen?
A little while ago, it was 102 degrees F outside in July. Hot as heck, and the humidity was 90% that morning, and was still in the upper 70s all day. Oddly enough, a thunderstorm warning went up for my area that afternoon, and clearly, radar showed convective cells forming and moving toward me.
Oddly enough, nang, boom, an inch of rain in a half hour, water running down the street, the power went out for about a half hour....and then the sun came out and it was 80 some degrees out. Still humid, and flood waters flowed in low lying or poor drainage areas.
I was going to call and lodge a complaint with the NWS because global warming needed to be addressed, but my wife looked at me and wasn't smiling....
"Don't you even think of playing tht game!" said she, wisely...
Thinking, I never saw anything more frequent, more severe, or somehow bearing signatures of some influence other than summer. It was all normal weather.
And in all that normal weather (been many decades observing the stuff), never have I observed "MORE" rain, or snow, or destruction, or problems. I've just observed normal weather (although running like hell from a tornado...but that's kind of normal too). Hurricanes are a pain in the ****, especially if you're in one!
I'm not sure I expect any more of this. It's always been pretty much the same.
But never did we create one, and never will we, nor never shall we get rid of one.
I'd like to know how we cool the warming we're allegedly, yet not evidently, cusing on this planet. If we could actually do that, we could certainly get rid of a storm too!
Maybe the "climatologist" will tell us how!
