The weather system currently churning south of Jamaica is projected to intensify into a hurricane in the coming days. Gov. Ron DeSantis declared a state of emergency in Florida.
"Things are all upside-down," making it hard for hurricanes to form, an expert says. But experts warn not to assume there's less risk just because the first months of hurricane season have been calm.
The redesigned mobile app is meant to be a one-stop shop where people can access needed information at all stages of a disaster.
For decades, it was impossible to say that a specific weather event was caused, or even made worse, by climate change. But advanced research methods are changing that.
Federal forecasters expect more hurricanes than usual this year. Climate change is driving larger, more destructive storms. This is the seventh year in a row with an above-average forecast.
Human-induced climate change fueled one of the most active hurricane seasons on record in 2020, with rainfall totals up to 10% higher than in the pre-industrial era, according to a new study.
At least nine hurricanes are predicted by researchers at Colorado State University. Four of those are expected to be Category 3 or higher.
When hurricanes cause both extreme high tides and heavy rains, devastating floods ensue. Such storms will get much more frequent by the end of the century, according to a new study.
A particularly active Atlantic hurricane season has left no more names on the official list for the year. Forecasters had expected between 13 and 20 storms, but the newly formed Wanda makes 21.
Scientists dispatched a specially designed surface drone into the middle of a Category 4 hurricane to gather data and give scientists a better understanding of such storms.
The storm was located about 630 miles off the coast of French Guiana on Saturday. There's a slight chance it could hit Bermuda, but modeling currently shows it's likely to miss the island.
The storm is forecast to intensify rapidly as it passes over warm water far out in the Atlantic, the National Hurricane Center says. It's too soon to predict where or when Sam might affect land.
Hurricane Ida rapidly gained strength right before it hit Louisiana this weekend. Abnormally hot water in the Gulf of Mexico acted as fuel for the storm.
Residents and crews are beginning to survey the damage after Ida pummeled Louisiana as a Category 4 hurricane. Experts say safety precautions are crucial in the aftermath.
