Global Warming Sparks Hurricane Harambe, Biggest Hurricane To Ever Hit United States
Get ready for the return of Harambe. Hurricane Harambe is forming in the Atlantic and it’s going to be the greatest Hurricane ever to hit the US, according to meteorologists.
Hurricane Harambe began forming on Wednesday morning. The Hurricane is being named after deceased zoo gorilla Harambe.
“We may be looking at the next Sandy or Katrina.” Said Dr. Kavorcian with the National Weather Service. “This hurricane is showing shape to being MASSIVE, and that’s a serious problem to watch out for.”
The National Weather Service is responsible for naming Hurricanes in alphabetical order.
Such a hurricane size would be catastrophic to the United States, and may even influence the election cycle. Looking back at the other two infamous hurricanes, one can only predict the damage to be brung by Harambe.
Hurricane Katrina was the eleventh named storm and fifth hurricane of the 2005 Atlantic hurricane season. It was the costliest natural disaster, as well as one of the five deadliest hurricanes, in the history of the United States. The storm is currently ranked as the third most intense United States land falling tropical cyclone, behind only the 1935 Labor Day hurricane and Hurricane Camille in 1969. Overall, at least 1,245 people died in the hurricane and subsequent floods, making it the deadliest United States hurricane since the 1928 Okeechobee hurricane. Total property damage was estimated at $108 billion (2005 USD), roughly four times the damage wrought by Hurricane Andrew in 1992.
Hurricane Sandy (unofficially known as “Superstorm Sandy”) was the deadliest and most destructive hurricane of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season, and the second-costliest hurricane in United States history. Classified as the eighteenth named storm, tenth hurricane and second major hurricane of the year, Sandy was a Category 3 storm at its peak intensity when it made landfall in Cuba. While it was a Category 2 storm off the coast of the Northeastern United States, the storm became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record (as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km)). Estimates as of 2015 assessed damage to have been about $75 billion (2012 USD), a total surpassed only by Hurricane Katrina. At least 233 people were killed along the path of the storm in eight countries.
