However, even though Birmingham is 300 miles inland from the coast, we can still have very severe weather attributed to hurricanes. A group of scientists from Georgia Tech looked at tropical cyclones from 1920 to 2008 and found that there has been a 35 percent increase in storm sizes compared to the previous period of active storms which was 1948–1964. This has lead to a doubling of tornados produced per storm. Hurricane Katrina alone produced 58 observed tornados directly attributed to the storm!
As you start your summer, plan ahead for hurricane season.
