Climate Change Will Now Bring Rare Storms Every Three Years
Global warming may cause major hurricanes and flooding more frequently in cities.
Hurricane Irene struck the east-cost of the U.S., Canada and the Caribbean last summer, and brought winds up to 85 mph (120 km/h) that caused mortalities and extensive damages among various communities. The tropical storm was called the ‘100-year event’, but scientists from MIT and Princeton University hypothesize that similar storms like Hurricane Irene could occur as often as every 3 to 20 years.
