For years, climate scientists have been worried about the impact of climate change on storms. Now we are starting to see the effects:
Global warming puts more energy into storms. This means stronger winds and larger storms. It also means that storms sustain their powerful winds longer as they make their way out of the tropics.
A warmer atmosphere holds more moisture, meaning that storms bring more rainfall.
Higher sea levels, resulting from thermal expansion and from melting glaciers and ice caps, lead to higher storm surge and more flooding damage. Sea levels along the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic are rising up to four times faster than the global average.
