    Well, in California they are stocking up on Unicorn farts for their limos when the gas runs out... And bunkering Avian water bottles... Plus extra batteries so they can call 911 when things go south for them.

    Hope they can get those with Spanish instructions on them.
    Hope they remember to check if there's water in the bottle. Probably not.

    Record keeping has been so poor until the 1960's that we really don't know if they were increasing or decreasing before that.
    Well, as long as there were people living on the coast, there was some record keeping, in the newspapers that existed in those areas since the Pilgrims landed. I'm also sure, in the days before newspapers, people kept diaries and journals.

    But, in deference to your semantics, there might be some conjecture in interpretation of what those coastal settlers may have seen, or even survived in those early days before photography. Historians agree that the Great Storm of 1900 that hit Galveston WAS a hurricane, but what intensity, those back then didn't know. They do recognize it as a Hurricane, and not as a Tropical Storm though.

    I would imagine that some parts of the Atlantic Seaboard were hit on some regular basis by really bad storms in the period from 1621 to 1821, but whether those storms were tropical storms, hurricanes, or just some frontal system making circular paths in the ocean, most of the folks back then didn't have a clue. Meteorology and climatology were "young" sciences back then (compared to chemistry and to a lesser extant, biology).
