Via FiveThirtyEight.com: Hurricane Hermine Doesn’t Exist Yet, But Experts Are Starting To Worry. After a thoughtful discussion of hurricane models and the disturbance currently called "invest 99L," the author writes:
As Matt Lanza wrote for FiveThirtyEight last year, there’s been a huge increase in vulnerability on our coastlines over the past decade. According to U.S. census data, more than 2 million more people live in Florida today than during the last strike: Hurricane Wilma on Oct. 24, 2005. More than half a million of those moved to the Miami area. Throw in the steady unrelenting pressure of sea level rise, and the Miami area could be facing real trouble.
Throw in Aedes aegypti as well, and the post-storm trouble could be even realer.
