NASA says study connects Weather Near Landfall to Hurricane Intensity

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – According to NASA, although most hurricanes tend to weaken as they approach land, some rapidly increase in strength just prior to landfall – a phenomenon that is both dangerous and hard to forecast. As the climate continues to warm, the number of storms that fall into the latter category is likely to increase, presenting a stark reality for communities in their paths.

Because current weather models can’t accurately predict this sudden intensification, communities preparing for a lesser storm often don’t have time to respond to the arrival of a much stronger one or to the magnitude of destruction it is likely to leave behind.

Hurricane Michael was captured from the International Space Station on Oct. 10, 2018, after the storm made landfall as a Category 4 hurricane over the Florida Panhandle. The National Hurricane Center reported maximum sustained winds near 145 mph (233 kph) with the potential to bring dangerous storm surge and heavy rains to the Florida Panhandle. (NASA)
