Hurricanes and Climate Change: Facts and Fiction
Hurricane season runs June 1 to November 30 annually. However, this year meteorologists at the NOAA National Hurricane Center will be issuing Tropical Weather Outlooks (TWOs) starting May 15. This due to the recent string of named storms prior to June 1. Not only are storms occurring earlier, but we are seeing both a rapid intensification of storms and a higher amount of the strongest hurricanes. Are these changes due to climate change? In this episode of Why It Matters, Libby Carnahan, our UF/IFAS Extension Pinellas County Florida Sea Grant Agent, will talk about the facts, fiction, and theories of hurricanes and climate change.
