Autopsy of a Modern Monster Storm

Harvey Hits Houston

Record-breaking ocean heat fueled Hurricane Harvey,
National Center for Atmospheric Research/University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, May 10, 2018.


"...weeks before Hurricane Harvey tore across the Gulf of Mexico and plowed into the Texas coast in August 2017, the Gulf's waters were warmer than any time on record..."

"These hotter-than-normal conditions supercharged the storm, fueling it with vast stores of moisture."

"The implication is that the warmer oceans increased the risk of greater hurricane intensity and duration."

"The study highlights the increased threat of future supercharged hurricanes due to climate change."

"We know this threat exists, and yet in many cases, society is not adequately planning for these storms."
