    The power of nature and physics, well captured among the wall of clouds – feel a little air-sick after watching.

    Tropical cyclones moving faster in recent decades

    Tropical cyclones, regionally known as hurricanes or typhoons, have been moving across ocean basins faster since 1982, according to a new study published in Environmental Research Letters.

      I thought tropical cyclones were stalling in place more due to blocking troughs. And with warm waters in spots being so deep, they can survive spinning in one place longer (e.g., Dorian over the Bahamas).

      Maybe their range of speed has widened.

    ============================================

    With record-breaking intensity, the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season has spawned at least 10 named hurricanes. The latest, a Category 1 named Hurricane Epsilon, is churning off Bermuda.

    More than a hundred species—including Asian swamp eels and zebra mussels—hitched a ride on Hurricane Isaias’ floodwaters, scientists say.
