Natural disasters are happening around the world : a sign of climate change ?

(ORDO NEWS) — In recent months, we have witnessed natural disasters around the world. More recently, on September 15, a severe storm triggered severe flooding in Italy, resulting in several deaths and missing people.

On Monday, September 19, Typhoon Nanmadol – one of the strongest in recent years – swept through southwestern Japan. It claimed the lives of 4 people and injured more than 100 others.

On Sunday 18, Hurricane Fiona hit Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, causing flooding.

Italy experienced extreme weather in August when temperatures reached 48.8 degrees Celsius, breaking a European record.

In early July, 11 people died when a huge mass of ice from a glacier on the north side of Mount Marmolada in the Dolomites broke away, triggering an avalanche.

The Mediterranean has been five degrees warmer than average this summer.

Record heat this summer was recorded throughout the Northern Hemisphere, severe droughts were observed in China and the central part of the EU.

Scientists are currently investigating whether climate change could increase the frequency of these events: since events such as hurricanes are reported to be subject to a range of climate change-related influences, such as warming sea surface temperatures and rising sea levels, a relationship is likely.
