Triple Hurricanes

NASA have released an image of an unprecedented three Category 4 hurricanes twisting around in the Pacific simultaneously.
According to the UN's World Meteorological Organisation, surface water temperatures in eastern-central parts of the Pacific Ocean are 2C higher than usual which is fuelling the hurricanes and the finger of blame is being aimed at Climate Change and El Niño.
The current El Niño event over the tropical Pacific is on track to be one of the strongest in more than
60 years, experts have claimed and forecasters are warning the weather phenomenon may yet gather strength.
