1. Category 4 #HurricaneMichael is yet another rapid intensifier, an extremely dangerous phenomenon that we we have seen repeatedly in the past 2 years in the Atlantic. Wind speeds have increased 50 mph in 24 hours.
2. Yesterday at 5 am, the storm had 90 mph winds and a central pressure of 973 millibars. nhc.noaa.gov/archive/2018/a…?
3. Today at 5 am, the @NWSNHC reported winds of 140 mph and central pressure down at 943 mb. And that has since dropped even further to 933 mb. nhc.noaa.gov/text/refresh/M…
4. Hurricane Florence also did this (but offshore). The damaging Atlantic storms of 2017 did this. It's probably the most dangerous thing a hurricane can do and it's often what separates weak storms from strong. washingtonpost.com/news/energy-en…
