2019, 2020 and 2021 were ominous – but they barely touched the surface.
Expect more heatwaves, storms, floods, droughts. Watch as the Arctic and Antarctic continue to melt.

Coral Reef death escalates.

"A Storm Hazard Matrix combining coastal flooding and beach erosion"

Consider these two locations. Did they face the same type of coastal storm hazard? A thread 1/7

#PuertoRico #USA #PuertoRicoEarthquakes

#PuertoRico still doesn't seem calm after so many #storms, and this Saturday there was a new 6.0 MI magnitude #earthquake on the momentum magnitude scale as part of a series of #aftershocks that have intensified since Friday night.
According to Prensa Latina, the meteorological phenomenon occurred in #Guánica, 14.87 kilometers south of #Peñuelas, at a depth of 5.04 kilometers.
On the other hand, the #NationalGuard of #PuertoRico considered declaring the island a #disaster area in order to receive additional funds after the #earthquakes.

We see that #wildfires are becoming more frequent and intense, like here in California. 2/10
