Hurricanes spawning more twisters, study finds

Recommended Posts

Researchers tie that to larger, more frequent storms in recent decades

Tornadoes that are spun off by hurricanes as they make landfall are on the rise, a new study finds. The spike in twisters seems to be related to the increase in size and frequency of land-hitting hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.

"As the size of landfalling hurricanes from the Gulf of Mexico increases, we're seeing more tornadoes than we did in the past that can occur up to two days and several hundred miles inland from the landfall location," said study researcher James Belanger, a Georgia Tech graduate student.
