Hurricane Michael, currently a catergory-1 storm, is tracking northward across the Caribbean, and is expected to make landfall in Florida on Wednesday. The storm is currently over Cuba, and is expected to strike the Florida Panhandle as a category-3 hurricane, with wind speeds up to 129 mph. Due to the high warmth of Gulf of Mexico waters, the storm could strengthen dramatically and suddenly as it moves off Cuba and out into the Gulf. This is what caused Hurricane Katrina to become such a severe storm as it moved onshore over New Orleans in 2005.

Unfortunately, Hurricane Florence is developing according to the same scenario that Unknowncountry has been warning about since the publication of Whitley Strieber and Art Bell’s book Superstorm in 1999. Katrina, Sandy, Harvey and now Florence have all come into contact with unusually warm inshore waters, causing them to strengthen dangerously as they moved onshore. Addiing to this problem, the storms have been slow moving due to the general decline in air circulation and the weight of the water vapor in these very large cloud masses.

Three Cape Verde hurricanes have formed at the same time in the south central Atlantic while a fourth storm in the Pacific in threatening Hawaii with it’s second hurricane of the season. At the same time, a new tropical depression is forming south of Florida. As the oceans warm, generalized outbreaks such as this will become the new normal, and coastal areas from Florida to Newfoundland will experience high-category named storms on a regular basis. In additon, warming Pacific waters will enable storms that form off the Baja Peninsula to move up into southern California waters within a few years.

Tropical Storm Florence, presently circulating in the south-central Atlantic Ocean, may move north and east and make landfall somewhere along the US East Coast later this week. If the storm reaches this area of the ocean, unsually warm water will cause it to increase rapidly in strength. This is the same effect that has been present in the Gulf of Mexico since the early part of this century.
