Hurricanes Are Becoming More Powerful, Study Says The report can be found in 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.' It suggests that climate change could be linked to why the intensity of storms has increased. Lead author James Kossin, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) scientist, says more information is needed. James Kossin Spanning 1979 to 2017, the analysis used figures collected from satellites. Over this time period, maximum sustained winds within storms were shown to have increased in strength. Results also show it is becoming increasingly likely that tropical storms transform into major hurricanes. Last year was considered a normal season but the term "normal" for hurricanes is becoming more extreme. 2019 saw the emergence of Hurricane Dorian, a category five storm and Humberto, a category three. NOAA is expected to reveal its analysis for this year on May 21, shortly before June 1 when the season starts up.
