Tropical cyclones are occurring more frequently than before. According to Terra Daily, new research from the Niels Bohr Institute clearly shows that because of a warmer climate, there is an increasing frequency for tropical cyclones or hurricanes. Storm surges are considered to be the most dangerous and the most destructive aspect of tropical cyclones. The study shows that globally warm years have been associated with a significantly higher risk of extreme storm surges such as the one that followed Katrina, which hit the New Orleans area in 2005 and caused devastating flooding and thousands of deaths.

Iran's suspect nuclear program has topped the international agenda and pressures on Tehran are mounting.
