Hurricanes: The Data Destroyer [Infographic]

June 1st marks the beginning of hurricane season, which keeps the country on high alert through November 30. During this time, homeowners will be checking and re-checking their emergency preparedness kits, while organizations evaluate and re-evaluate their disaster recovery plans.

Forecasters expect an active season in 2018, but according to the NASA Earth Observatory, this should not come as a surprise. A study based on more than two decades worth of data reveals that hurricanes intensify faster than they did 25 year ago, and Category 3 hurricane wind speeds are occurring nearly nine hours faster than they did in the 1980s. But that’s not all:

  • Since 1948, extreme downpours have increased 30%
  • Since the 1970s, hurricane strength has become 60% more powerful
  • Since 1988, rainfall from tropical cyclones has increased nearly 25%
  • Since 2000, global wind speeds have strengthened by 5%
