Hurricane Ida is forecast to strike as a category 3 storm, the same as Katrina exactly 16 years ago.

The impact of climate change on the frequency of storms is still unclear, but we know that increased sea surface temperatures warm the air above and make more energy available to drive hurricanes, cyclones and typhoons. As a result, they are likely to be more intense with more extreme rainfall.
