Yahoo Finance's Akiko Fujita discusses how Hurricane Ian developed and how the storm's intensity has been attributed to human-caused climate change.
AKIKO FUJITA: Well, staying with Hurricane Ian, let's get to our Chart of the Day. Data from Axios give us a sense of how dramatic and, in some cases, unprecedented this hurricane has been. It used to be uncommon for storms to continue gaining strength until landfall, but that's not the case anymore. That was on display with Ian, as it jumped from a category 3 to a category 5 storm in midweek as it approached Florida. Climate change has been determined as a key reason behind this, with warmer ocean temperatures a big contributing factor.
