    Aren’t typhoons typically stronger and bigger than hurricanes, on account of the warmer water in the Pacific? Not that i want to belittle the effects of Katrina, Rita and so on…

    Hmm, anyone notice the severity of those other storms in “tornado alley” have also increased significantly in strength in recent decades. The increased “financial costs” of these storms, and fires, in the U.S. is mostly because folks keep spending more to build in hazard areas.

    Anybody remember Hurricane Andrew? The photos of this one remind me of that one. The houses, the trees, and even the street signs were gone.

    Nope.

    Are tornadoes and severe thunderstorms getting more numerous and more extreme due to climate change?

    If a tree falls in the forest and no one is there, does it make a sound?

    Yeah…well… prove it. And if you place “sensors” of any kind there You Are There.

    Uhhh what’s the point?

    Well, if you look at the history of terrible powerful storms, then you will see that they have always been here. But, you say the death tolls and the property destruction are so much worse today. Yes, but doesn’t that reflect the idiocy of humans developing the ocean front, putting more people and property in the line of fire?

    But to the toon. I live in Florida, a Florida native born. In the last few years we have had dire warnings, predictions of extreme danger, multiple storms to develop and major hurricanes to come.

    What happened?

    Yep had 12 named storms in the Atlantic. no major ones and nothing to report ……. extreme

    The worst storm on record has, by definition, not always been here. This is predicted by every climate model, and it’s coming true. No suprises, unless you’re a science denier.

    Dude, do you read?

    Back in Sept the USA Today had an article about the 2013 Hurricane season. Not the only news outlet to have a similar article.

    The article starts off with: "The preseason predictions were all dire, using words like “extremely active” and “above-normal” to describe the forecast for the 2013 Atlantic hurricane season. "

    But guess what? At the time of the article (9/7/13) there were …. uhhh…. let me count …. uhhh NONE.

    But I enjoy the entertainment. I have a plan as well, and supplies, know where all the shelters are and the evac routes. WHY? Because hurricanes DO happen. Just not necessarily as predicted.

    As far as the worst on record, here are the top ten – I’m sure the typhoon that hit the Philippines will take a position on this list in the future.

    Like I said, there have ALWAYS been powerful storms.

    The Gulf Stream makes the Atlantic much warmer than the Pacific. The Pacific is deeper and colder.
