New Report Claims Hurricanes Could Start Pushing Inland

# New Report Claims Hurricanes Could Start Pushing Inland

## A study suggests that hurricanes might move further inland due to climate change in the coming decades.

As the impacts of global climate change become more pronounced, we are witnessing tangible changes in our environment. One critical aspect is the increased frequency and intensity of tropical storms, with recent hurricane seasons being notably long and severe. A recent report now indicates that this trend could mark the beginning of a more stormy future.

According to the findings of a report by the nonprofit organization First Street Foundation, as global climate changes reinforce tropical storms and hurricanes, these weather events are likely to advance further inland over the next 30 years. The report estimates that at least 13 million properties in the central United States, currently unaffected by hurricanes, may soon face strong winds. While the total number of storms is not expected to rise significantly, they are predicted to become more potent and enduring.

The Chief Data Officer of First Street Foundation, Ed Kearns, explained, “As a powerful storm makes landfall and loses access to warm ocean waters that fuel it, the stronger the storm, the higher the likelihood of it penetrating further inland.” He added, “Therefore, we may observe risks emerging in unexpected places like western Tennessee. There are some instances where the extent to which hurricanes move inland surprised me.”

The researchers at First Street Foundation highlighted the impact of these changing hurricane patterns in Florida alone. They noted that the number of properties at risk of facing a Category 5 hurricane is projected to increase from 2.5 million in 2023 to 4.1 million by 2053.
