Interesting article on the increasing strength of hurricanes 09:22 - Oct 11 with 690 viewsStokieBlue

It's the Guardian so a bit low on the actual science but still a nice overview:

“You may not feel outstandingly robust, but if you are an average-sized adult you will contain within your modest frame no less than 7 X 10^18 joules of potential energy—enough to explode with the force of thirty very large hydrogen bombs, assuming you knew how to liberate it and really wished to make a point."

Not a hurricane, but we were caught under the bomb cyclone to hit the NE States earlier this year (on the second figure in this article we were right under the area showing the highest snowfall). https://www.vox.com/science-and-health/2018/1/3/16845048/winter-storm-2018-bomb- They do proper storms over there.

And of course, scientists have been predicted increased extremes and variability in weather as a consequence of climate change for many years now but still aren't taken as seriously as they should be.

Awesome stuff really. I'm always fascinated by the power in nature and can't imagine what a cat 6 hurricane would look like. Sustained winds over 200 mph - wow!

I was kind of interested in what I would do in the event of a natural disaster like this happening where I live (I live near Chelmsford so pretty unlikely) and promptly disappeared down the Survivalist rabbit hole on Youtube, and now I know the difference between 9mm and.22 ammo and am planning on renting a unit to put a 72 hour cache in.

I am a true warrior at my sport which is bodybuilding. My goal is to eventually get my pro card and nothing can stop me from trying to achieve this goal. My favorite bodybuilders are Arnold, Jay Cutler, Tom Platz, and Dennis Wolf. I love to work out and chill with my boys, and am single for the ladies. Anybody that wants to be my friend is very welcome, especially the ladies, and jealous haters don't appear on my radar

Mid Essex being a well-known hurricane corridor and all that. You can never be too careful though.

When SHTF and you need to BO then preparedness is the key!

If they start fracking in your area, & you may never know where, your house may disappear down something a bit bigger than a rabbit hole -?

Applying Betteridge's law, we won't be seeing cat 6 hurricanes

In the 38 games in which ALB played in goal for us, we averaged 1.53 points per game which, had they been over the course of a single season, would have seen us challenging for the play offs. This at a time when we were otherwise struggling against relegation. Oh, and didn't Mick Mills have terrific posture.

Or drink kombucha. I like the comments calling out the Guardian as a yuppie paper.

Significant is stretching it a bit! :)

The north sea seems to be the main area for larger quakes, although I never realised there was one this big in the UK:

1508:

"Felt in England and Scotland. Recent studies suggest that this earthquake may have been as large as magnitude 7.0, with the epicentre northwest of Scotland."

You can buy in my brother and I will give you the bug out shelter address, the cost is 3 lbs of gold bullion a sack of powdered egg and 100 shotgun cartridges.
