Hurricanes are traveling more slowly - which makes them even more unsafe

Hurricanes Are Lingering Longer. That Makes Them More Dangerous.

Hurricanes Are Slowing Down and Leaving More Damage When They Hit Land

Slow-moving tropical storms and hurricanes also lead to strong winds blowing for a longer duration over the same place and possibly more storm surge, Kossin told the AP. It stated the storm was forecast to maintain shifting out into the Pacific.

The unusually slow-moving Hurricane Harvey was a recent example.

In the Atlantic basin, the slowdown is just 6 percent. In some regions, the pace of those storms slowed even more as they hit land. Kossin works at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Centers for Environmental Information.

The study was published Wednesday in the peer-reviewed British journal Nature. Atlantic storms that make landfall moved 2.9 miles per hour (4.7 kph) slower than 60 some years ago, it said.

"Kossin is right that a 10 percent change in tropical cyclone motion would be an important change due to its effect on accumulated precipitation", Texas state climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon said in an email.

That means a storm that may already hold more moisture will have time to drop more of it in each spot.

Medical today? Lyon dispute French claims of scheduled Liverpool visit
Fekir is set to play for France on Saturday evening against the U.S. , a game that will take place in Lyon's Stade des Lumieres. Fekir will be given permission to leave France's World Cup training base and could undergo his medical on Merseyside on Friday.

"Tropical cyclones are just carried along by the wind, so it makes sense", Kossin says.

In a warming world where atmospheric circulations are expected to change, the atmospheric circulation that drives tropical cyclone movement is expected to weaken.

If Harvey is any indication of what hurricanes will look like in the future, this will create a considerable strain on countries' ability to respond financially to storms. So it isn't clear just how much of the change that Kossin found is actually attributable to human-induced climate change.
