 Worldandnation: Storm frenzy is not an anomaly, but a phase
Now climatologists say frenzied hurricane seasons will be a fact of life for the next 10 to 20 years, part of a lengthy cycle of stormy eras followed by calmer ones.
"The consensus among hurricane researchers and forecasters is that the hurricane landfalls of 2004 resulted from the AMO, a natural cycle of hurricane activity, combined with a lapse in the incredibly good fortune of the previous 35 years," Hugh Willoughby, a hurricane researcher at Miami's Florida International University, wrote in an essay last fall.
As the 2005 hurricane season continues to rage, NOAA reports that half the nation now lives on 17 percent of the land: the coasts.

The official hurricane season is almost over, but the long-term crisis is just beginning, and more storms will threaten South Florida.
Most scientists believe the ''switch'' that turbocharged the hurricane engine in recent years was a combination of supportive wind patterns and the cyclical return of elevated sea-surface temperatures across a key swath of the Atlantic -- a rise of less than one degree, but enough to pump high-octane fuel into developing storms.
And now, with the official season ending but the long-term crisis still at an early stage, he and other experts sympathize with those who lost their lives to hurricanes in New Orleans, Biloxi and elsewhere, including South Florida.
