11/30/2018: Florida Faces Hotter Days, Stronger Hurricanes And Storm Surges

8b522769-6d4e-4719-b1ce-a47e4323de2b

Hurricane Michael, seen here on Oct. 10 as it neared the Florida Panhandle, was the strongest storm to hit the area since records were first kept.

This week on The Florida Roundup we dedicated the full hour to looking at the risks from climate change and impacts the Sunshine State faces.

A new federal government report, called the Fourth Annual Climate Assessment finds that climate change already is affecting Florida and warns that risks will keep growing.

A separate report from the Climate Central research group has found over the past five decades several Florida cities – including Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Tampa and Miami – have experienced a growing number of days with temperatures rising above 95 degrees.
