#ClimateCatastrophe news are becoming "better" every week:
"With #GlobalWarming the share of the most intense tropical cyclones is expected to increase so that economies may not be able to recover fully in between storms.
However, long-term effects of extreme events are not taken into account so far."

"Following a destructive event like a #hurricane, PACs thrive, quickly spreading into a thick coating along the #seafloor, which then actively deters coral #larvae from landing and starting a new colony."
Greetings everyone. Thanks for stopping by. With less than a month left in the Atlantic hurricane season I will continue with hurricane preparedness information that you'll find helpful. First, let's start with an infographic on dressing for winter weather. It's not to early to think about your cold weather wardrobe. There are several other interesting reads this week, so let's get started.
This is insane!
According to The Washington Post, a #weather station near #Acapulco recorded a wind gust of 205 mph during the landfall of Category 5 Hurricane Otis, which is one of the highest ever observed in the world.
For the record, the highest ever recorded wind gust was measured on Barrow Island, Australia, in 1996, with a speed of 253 mph.

"#ClimateResilient features that might have once been considered architectural frills are now helping commercial real estate owners lower property costs in the long-term.
A 2018 study by commercial property insurer FM Global found that for every dollar spent on #hurricane protection, a building will lower its loss exposure by $105."
"Two hours of terror and now years of devastation for Acapulco’s poor in Hurricane Otis aftermath"
"Estela Sandoval Díaz was huddled in her tiny concrete bathroom, sure these were the final moments of her life, when Hurricane Otis ripped off her tin roof.
The Category 5 hurricane damaged nearly all of Acapulco’s homes, left bodies bobbing along the coastline and much of the city foraging for food."
NYTimes: "Near an Acapulco Beach: Food, Water and Prayer After Hurricane Otis" "Mr. Sánchez, a member of the Guerrero state civil protection agency, had been assigned as a coordinator here and at four other makeshift shelters in the area....
“This is chaos,” Mr. Sánchez added. “Acapulco is a disaster.”"

Update - Maria’s uncle got his sister’s family off their roof. Entire family (Grandma, Uncle’s family, Aunt’s family) now staying at uncle’s house (with destroyed first floor). They’ve lost everything & can’t even buy basics in #Alcapulco. Brother in Cabo is on his way with truckload of supplies.
Category 4 and 5 hurricanes arriving earlier due to climate change, University of Hawaiʻi study finds
"A hurricane gutted a city of one million, leaving no food or water and the dead to rot."
"One would think that an unprecedented category-five windstorm that flattened a resort city of one million people on Mexico’s Pacific coast might be mentioned at least below the fold of mainstream media cable and print outlets. In general, it has not."

Why is there media silence about this catastrophic destruction by the forces of nature, unleashed by #ClimateChange ??
Even 24 hours before the hurricane reached category 5 status, the NHC only predicted peak winds of about 70mph. However, Otis rapidly intensified en route to making landfall in Mexico, with winds increasing by about 70mph in just 12 hours, leaving little time for preparations to be made.
Acapulco is home to more than 1 million people. At the time of writing, authorities had confirmed 27 deaths, with four people still missing.
Good, high level summary of the destruction in Acapulco, as is known at the moment, with emphasis on the weather aspects. Much, much greater damage (as I personally expected) than initial media coverage, as is expected when all communications is lost. #Acapulco #HurricaneOtis #hurricane #otis #cyclone #disaster https://yaleclimateconnections.org/2023/10/acapulco-reeling-from-catastrophic-damage-in-the-wake-of-hurricane-otis/
Things in Guerrero/Acapulco don't seem to be going great after Otis. Headline is "Disarray and Looting Grows" https://www.reforma.com/libre/online07/aplicacionei/Pagina.html #Hurricane #HurricaneOtis #Otis #Acapulco
At least 27 people died in Acapulco due to hurricane #Otis. Chances are that its (unexpected) explosive growth was caused by climate change, starting with warm ocean water.

First time on record, a tropical storm grows into monster Category 5 Hurricane in *hours* fueled by unusual hot ocean temperatures. Unexpected, something new.

Scary Hurricane Otis hitting Acapulco, Mexico at Category 5. It set NE Pacific record for most rapid intensification Tuesday, from tropical storm to Cat 5 in <24 h. I hope Acapulco people are ready. #hurricane #Acapulco
