Washington: Experts have suggested in a research study that the early arrival of severe storms is attributed to climate change.
According to official reports, scientists have made a discovery while examining the results of a research study. Since the 1980s, it has been observed that severe oceanic storms of category four and five have been arriving a few days earlier than their usual expected time, every decade.
The joint research conducted by scientists from the American state of Hawaii University has been published in the renowned journal “Nature.” It reveals that storms with features such as intense winds, torrential rains, flash floods, extremely rapid winds, and coastal hurricanes are considered the most destructive natural disasters in the world.
Professor Pao-Shin Chu, an environmental scientist specializing in atmospheric sciences and climate at the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology and the Hawaii State Climatologist, stated that when severe storms arrive earlier than usual, they pose unexpected challenges to communities.
According to researchers, the impact of climate change is particularly evident in the eastern North Pacific, where a greater number of oceanic storms occur. This area includes the Western North Atlantic, South Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico, and the Caribbean Sea.
