Next Tropical Storm is Easy on the Rain and Wind

The next tropical storm is moving towards Florida and heavy rain is expected there and in Cuba, according to weather.com    One to three inches of rain is predicted to fall in parts of south and east Florida, the Florida Keys, and northwest Bahamas and some flash flooding may happen. This “tropical depression” isn’t expected to knock out any power lines as happened during Hurricane Irma on September 10 when more than 4.4 million FPL customers were without power due to downed power lines. Since then, residents like those living in Coral Gables are considering a multi-million dollar plan to put their power lines underground. That stronger and more intense hurricanes are due to global warming and climate change have convinced many that protecting power lines is absolutely necessary.

According to the Washington Post, a majority of Americans believe the severe hurricanes just experienced are because of climate change. A new Washington Post-ABC News poll reveals a spike in those seeing the connection than in a 2005 Post-ABC poll taken just weeks after Hurricane Katrina.
