Impact This!

With every natural disaster (earthquake, hurricane, etc.) comes the prolific overuse of the word "impact."  I don't recall hearing the words "effect" or "affect" used once during the coverage.

Perhaps just as well that effect/affect aren't used much, since many people don't seem to know the difference.

At least we're not seeing or reading "impactful." I hate, hate that word.
