“Typhoons Ravage China’s Bread Basket, Worrying Farmers”
http://www.sixthtone.com/news/1006153/t ... ng-farmers

“After rampaging through Japan and South Korea, Typhoon Haishen has unleashed a torrent of heavy rain and high winds on Northeast China since Tuesday, dealing another blow to the country’s agricultural heartland that had already endured two other storms in recent weeks. The inclement weather has further damaged the region where another typhoon, Maysak, flattened corn fields and submerged rice paddies while also raising the flood risk posed by dozens of rivers, according to the state-run Xinhua News Agency. Authorities in the affected provinces — Liaoning, Jilin, and Heilongjiang — have been on high alert, with the heavy rainfall expected to continue. The forecast is bad news for the hundred million-plus residents of Northeast China, a region known as China’s bread basket, as locals’ livelihoods depend heavily on agriculture. In 2018, the three provinces accounted for 20% of the country’s total food production”

No one covering Sally?

Meanwhile, there's a tropical cyclone in the Mediterranean right now! Possibly reaching hurricane strength before slamming into Greece.

Anyone have any idea how (un-)usual that is?

From Wikipedia:
On a few rare occasions, some storms have been observed reaching the strength of a Category 1 hurricane. The main societal hazard posed by Medicanes is not usually from destructive winds, but through life-threatening torrential rains and flash floods. The occurrence of Medicanes has been described as not particularly rare.

Hurricane Teddy is another one to watch.

Currently a cat 2, projected to become a cat 4.

spaghetti models suggest it could hit in the Maine - New Brunswick - Nova Scotia area.
Though most models show it staying further out to sea:

Thanks, T. I liked "Medicanes"--sounds like an advertiser's name for forms of cocaine used for medical purposes!

Only yesterday, there were predictions that this tropical storm could develop into a 120 MPH hurricane (Cat 2 only) and srike the Louisiana coastline AGAIN. I always ask myself, how do they know a Cat 2 and not some other Cat #. Well, they don't!

Hurricane Delta Rapidly Strengthens Into a Category 4; Forecast to Strike Cancún, Then U.S. Gulf Coast Later This Week
https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/2020-10-06-hurricane-delta-forecast-caribbean-united-states-projected-path?cm_ven=hp-slot-1

Quite unprecedented I would say. Climate chaos is in full swing. Sort of predicted, I would say. Anyone truly surprised? I would say, no, not at all, not in the least.

I would think that this would be major news, but it's not. It's just casually accepted. We're still preoccupied whether Trump is wearing a mask or not, which, of course, is significant in it's own right.

It would be nice if all the hurricanes, tornadoes, wildfires, droughts heat waves, etc. and other climate change driven weather would stop when Biden and the Ds take over....but unfortunately they're just going to get worse.

Climate change today is largely driven by the huge and growing CO2 emissions coming from India and China, and Biden and the Ds actually SUPPORT higher CO2 emissions from China and India.

So get your popcorn.....its just going to get more and more interesting as global warming intensifies even more.

The most surprising aspect (to me) is how rapidly these 'canes' are intensifying. I know that we now have satellite eyes on these. Still, it seems unprecedented to me.

I just heard that Delta intensified faster than any storm in the recorded history of Atlantic storms!

2 dead, 26 missing as Typhoon Molave slams into Vietnam -channelnewsasia
"The people of Vietnam are tough, yet this is among the worst destruction ever seen in many areas," said Vietnam Red Cross Society president Nguyen Thi Xuan Thu. "The relentless storms and flooding are taking a devastating human toll, further destroying livelihoods and isolating millions of people."

Strongest typhoon of 2020 slams the Philippines, killing at least 10 -cnn

Storm surges hit some coastal towns, while rivers overflowed and dikes were destroyed, submerging several villages in Bicol.

The world's strongest storm this year, which had reached a super typhoon category and brought violent winds and intense rainfall, further weakened with 125 kph (78 miles per hour) sustained winds and gusts of up to 170 kph, the weather bureau said.

Iota, hopefully the last of this years hurricanes.

https://gcaptain.com/cat-5-hurricane-io ... l-america/

The unprecedented 2020 hurricane season comes as Central America is facing an economic crisis linked to the coronavirus pandemic, with experts warning the compounding hardship could worsen infections, spread hunger, and fuel a new round of migration from the region.

Iota is the fiercest November storm in the region since a 1932 Cuba hurricane that packed 175-mph (281-kph) winds, according to private forecasting firm AccuWeather.

Quite the season it was/is!

I heard that Eta set some kind of record for rapid intensification. I haven't heard yet whether Iota has already broken that record, but I wouldn't be surprised.

Record-breaking 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season Continues - Iota is:
* the strongest Atlantic hurricane of the year
* the 2nd November hurricane to reach category five ever
* the 30th named storm,
* the 13th hurricane
* the 6th major hurricane
* the latest-forming Category-5 hurricane on record

"Lightning around the eye is often an indication of rapid intensification" - see remarkable bird's eye video on this link:
