Equator Storms

Post by Rogue on Fri Sep 14, 2018 7:17 am

THE MAP LOOKS terrifyingly unfamiliar. Not because of the outlines of the continents; those are comforting in their hooks, tails, splotches, and whorls. It’s the storms. Across the globe’s tropics right now, seven superstorms are swirling over oceans. Hurricane Florence is butting into the Carolinas on North America’s southeastern coast. Tropical storms Helene, Isaac, and Joyce are hovering over the Atlantic like jets stacked on approach to Charlotte. Tropical cyclone Barijat is breaking up as it makes landfall at the Gulf of Tonkin while the Philippines and the rest of southeast Asia girds itself for Super Typhoon Mangkhut.

That's unreal! Pretty soon there will be no habitable spaces and we'll be reduced to wandering tribes.

the Florence pooped out at landfall, so she became a mere tropical storm at the end. Will the storms be more raging over oceans and then peter out at land fall w/o the thermals to drive them?

Still climate change is impacting them either way.

Mangkhut might be more like what we should expect.

The water Flo is dumping looks pretty incredible! Turning into an inland sea.
