The Future Of Hurricanes

From WUNC – North Carolina Public Radio

“Floodwaters from Hurricane Harvey still filled the streets in Texas when Hurricane Irma blew ashore in Florida. As the latest storm moves toward North Carolina, Duke scientists explore whether these rare weather events are growing more frequent or more extreme. They also analyze how communities and governments can become more resilient.

Host Frank Stasio talks with oceanographer Susan Lozier, professor of earth and ocean sciences in Duke University’s Nicholas School of the Environment, about whether climate change is to blame and what other weather events could occur as a result of changing ocean conditions.”
