Climate change impacts local communities in almost every way. Worsening storms, however, bring immediate crisis. Hurricanes carry more water and churn at higher speeds when ocean water and the atmosphere is warmer. Hurricanes are cyclonic storms, and on land cyclones are tornados. Both storms need preparation and adaptation in communities to be ready.
For the climate cafe, five experts joined in the conversation to talk about what cyclonic storms are, why these storms are impacted by climate change, how communities can prepare an respond in the aftermath. The full article and video is here: Plan. Prepare. Pray. Share.
Conversation about climate change can be challenging. Preparing, adapting...unwelcome change.

It is also true that as we work to prepare and care for each other, we can build cleaner, greener communities for all.
