Hurricane Otis hit near the popular tourist city of Acapulco on Mexico’s Pacific coast yesterday. Tropical storms usually take days to turn into powerful hurricanes, but Otis did it in 12 hours before going on to make landfall.
Forecasters have rarely seen a storm strengthen as fast as Otis did. To meet the definition of what scientists consider “rapid intensification,” a storm’s wind speed has to increase at least 35 mph in 24 hours or less. Otis’ winds increased 115 mph in 24 hours. The National Hurricane Center described Otis as “explosively” intensifying.

Our household has simply drastically reduced our CO2 footprint since switching over to an EV.
