Hurricanes last longer and do more damage after making landfall due to climate change, study says

  • Warmer waters cause hurricanes to lose power more slowly after landfall because they act as a reserve fuel tank for moisture
  • In the 1960s, hurricanes declined two-thirds in wind strength within 17 hours of landfall. Now it generally takes 33 hours for storms to weaken that much
