Hurricane seasons are getting more severe, with weather systems growing larger - faster - and becoming increasingly destructive.
So we ask - should we start to look at Category 5 and Super Typhoons less of an anomaly and more the norm? What does the data and predictive modelling tell us?
SonTek works with scientists and experts to better understand the trends, but there is a very human side of these global weather events that we touch upon in this podcast. Application Engineer, Dr. Xue Fan and Product Manager, Janice Yasui, sit down with Professor Rosa Leon-Zayas whose family survived the power of Cat-5 Hurricane Maria that devastated Puerto Rico, Dominica, and the U.S. Virgin Islands in September 2017. Rosa tells the story of what her family went through in Puerto Rico, the challenges they continue to face, and what could have been done to mitigate the damage from this powerful natural disaster.
