Increasing carbon dioxide emissions could increase the risk of more frequent and more powerful hurricanes to strike at the northeastern coast of the United States.
Cape Canaveral Air Force Base was battered by hurricane Matthew where some of NASA and SpaceX facilities are located. Both companies suffered from minor damages during the storm.
After 11 long years, a very powerful hurricane will make a landfall in the state of Florida. From previously a tropical storm Hermine, it now turns as a hurricane with its maximum sustained winds increased to 120 km/hr.
Global salt marsh erosion is largely driven by regular weather patterns, rather than the occasional violent storm.
New models suggest that New York City is at a higher risk of hurricane-related flooding, say researchers Pennsylvania State University who compared records of storm surge levels from before and after climate change.
It's been ten years since Hurricane Katrina made landfall in the western US. Now NASA and the US Geological Survey (USGS) have released detailed maps showing how radically the hurricane changed not only neighbor- and livelihoods, but also the geography of New Orleans itself.
The Atlantic is often hit with hurricanes come summertime, but it is likely to see below-normal storms this season, according to the NOAA's Climate Prediction Center.
Believe it or not, it's been nine whole years since North America was struck by what meteorological experts consider a "major" hurricane. Experts at NASA determined that such a long dry-spell is likely to occur only once every 177 years. So what has caused it? It could just be luck.
The United States - especially the East Coast - has experienced some major hurricanes in the past, including Hurricanes Katrina, Sandy and Irene. Now new research shows that 85 percent of these tropical cyclones come from Africa of all places.
City blackouts could surge with climate change due to more frequent hurricane-related power outages, leaving even New York City, the "city that never sleeps," in the dark, according to a new study.
East Coast hurricanes manage to flood the US Midwest, despite being located hundreds of miles inland from the nearest ocean, according to a new study.
Persistent drought, along with disease, warfare and worn-out soils, caused the collapse of the Mayan civilization. But it was always thought that hurricanes were the driving factor, fueling the lack of rain; that is, until new research showed that these storms did not in fact doom these ancient people.
The Hawaiian islands are known for their slow and ponderous lava flows that can lasts for months. Hurricane-force winds certainly don't fit that description, but can be equally disastrous given the right circumstances. Now, both natural forces could be encroaching upon Hawaii at the same time, which is worrying officials.
Now, new research offers a different way to predict hurricane strength and destruction, giving people a better idea of how to prepare for such storms.
Hurricane Marie has finally begun to spin down, weakening from hurricane status to a tropical storm this Thursday morning. Interestingly, NASA and NOAA satellites show that Marie is a fighter, still producing new rising air and thunderstorms to keep it spinning.
