(Boulder, CO) — New research published in Nature magazine is showing that in the past 70 years, hurricanes have slowed down by about ten percent due to global climate change. This means that storms are becoming more intense and communities are being pummeled with hurricane-force conditions for longer amounts of time. Researchers say that a storm slowing down by ten percent brings the potential for twice the amount of rain. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts a 70 percent likelihood that this year’s hurricane season will bring ten to 16 named storms.
