Storms and more floods will come in 2018

Storms and more floods will come in 2018.


Many terrible storms occurred in 2017 This year 10 storms, 6 large categories of 3 or more storms, which were more than last year. Without any weak tropical storms, about 10 storms were created simultaneously. This was the first time since 1893 that such acts were registered on earth. So are the storms getting worse and do they have to do with climate change?
In the year 2017 the Atlantic hurricane season was particularly bad. In August, Hurley stormed the United States. The storm came with bringing rain with 1,539 millimeters more than any tropical storm. For this reason, this type of flood was found to be seen which gets once in 500 years. Because of this Houston City of Texas suffered $ 200 billion worth of damage. But the irony is that "the one-time coming in 500 years" came in Huston for the third time in the last three years.

If seen, some of the storm lasts for a day or two but due to Harvi, the torrential rains did not stop for a week.
When came September came with Irma Hurricane, who caused a catastrophe in the Caribbean tweets. The extremely powerful tropical cyclone Irma was in its most vivid form and it was inserted into category five category.
According to the United States National Weather Service, the highest speed of the Irma storm was measured at 257 kilometers per hour.

Fast winds continued for about 37 hours - See tropical storms coming across the world, the winds were the longest during Erma. Then came hurricane Maria This was also the Category 5 storm. Hurricanes hit at a speed of 281 kilometers per hour, causing Puerto Rico to suffer heavy losses. For this reason the power grid was badly damaged. The electricity supply was closed all over the island and the house of nearly 3.5 million people living here became dark in the house.
After that Ophelia collided with Portugal and Spain. Earlier, no tropical storm had reached such a distance in the east direction.
Due to Ophelia, the dust from the Sahara desert reached north in London due to which darkness was also present during the day. But despite all this, 2017 is not the worst in many ways. There was no such horrific hurricane like Hurricane Ellen in the year 1980. Tornado winds were running at a speed of 305 kilometers per hour in the storm Alain. Nor did this year the worst storms came in 2005. In 2005, there were 28 hurricanes worldwide, which were given a name, of which seven were Hurricanes, one of which was Katrina. But the year 2017 was a year when there was a great devastation due to the storm. Although the loss figure due to the storm has been improved, but according to an estimate, the loss of $ 385 billion has been caused.

According to the National Hurricane Center in 2005, there was a loss of $ 144 billion due to hurricanes. If it is seen in today's date with the rate of inflation, it will be approximately $ 189 billion. Speaking about the storms, the year 2017 has gone very bad. But are the storms becoming more and more powerful and fierce over time?

Since 1924, 33 storms of Category 5 have come, from which 11 storms have occurred in the last 14 years. We know that the storm takes a fable through the hot winds in the ocean and for the past 100 years the global average temperature of the ocean is more than 1 degree. But since you have seen the record of storms every year since the records have been kept, then a few years are worse.

Weather scientists calculate the Accumulated Cyclone Energy to detect the total strength of all the storms of the year. It has not recorded any significant increase in recent years. There is no doubt that the oceans are becoming hotter than before but in some years due to many other reasons hurricanes can not become fierce. In the formation of a hurricane, the storm of sand in the Sahara desert can also be interfered, and the impact of storms in the African areas can also affect the proximity to the equator. But to be seen, it is ironic that hurricanes come down with high winds.

Fierce winds in the Atlantic interfere in the storm, and due to this the storm can not take a terrible appearance.
During a process of El Niño, the Pacific Ocean gets warmer than normal, near the equator. Due to this, there is a change in the pattern of global air and the winds move in the Atlantic. This means that during the year El Niño happens there are fewer storms.

But when the Pacific Ocean is relatively cold (known as La Niña), it starts reversing and makes it easy to make the storms. The year 2017 is of Nina. Indeed, the strength of the storms that are being created during La Niña with each decade is increasing.

Fierce winds are the only reason for the storm, climate change also affects the year in which more storms will occur. Any area which rains heavily in the rain during the storm. If there was no climate change then due to Hurricane Hurricane, Houston would have heavy rains. But it would be right to believe that this year, it came with more rain than it had done hundred years ago.

In the past hundred years the global temperature has increased by 1 degree and the air is heated. Hot air has more capacity to bear water. This may be the reason for the rising incidence of excessive rains in the United States in this decade. Construction is another reason that makes the area more damaging. Houston's population has more than doubled in comparison to 1960, and more than two million people live here. Now the residential area has started to be built in places where the land is dry. This is also why homes are more damaged.

At the same time, the ice sheet on the poles and the glaciers are melting, due to which the sea level is increasing.
