➔ All weather is affected by climate change because the Earth’s atmosphere is warmer, moister, and more active today than in the recent past

➔ As a result, storms are becoming more extreme both in and outside of the tropics and will cause greater damage

➔ The location and extent of the additional damage is difficult to predict, as experts and their studies differ in their conclusions

➔ Countries already exposed to tropical cyclones or immediately adjacent to cyclone belts should prepare for growing risks and damages, especially in coastal areas
