A potentially unprecedented scenario is unfolding in the North Atlantic on Friday, as a bomb cyclone batters Iceland with hurricane-force winds and blizzard conditions, just as another bomb cyclone, known as Storm Dennis, rapidly intensifies behind it. Ultimately, the two storms will enter into a complex dance around each other before combining into one atmospheric behemoth, with a minimum central air pressure that could rank among the top three most intense storms ever observed in the stormy North Atlantic Basin.

Twin bomb cyclones to merge into one of strongest-ever storms in North Atlantic, hammering Iceland and threatening Britain as Storm Dennis

A potentially unprecedented scenario is unfolding in the North Atlantic on Friday, as a bomb cyclone batters Iceland with hurricane-force winds and blizzard conditions, just as another bomb cyclone, known as Storm Dennis, rapidly intensifies behind it. Ultimately, the two storms will enter into a complex dance around each other before combining into one atmospheric behemoth, with a minimum central air pressure that could rank among the top three most intense storms ever observed in the stormy North Atlantic Basin.

Already on Friday morning, the first bomb cyclone, which has a minimum central air pressure of 929 millibars, roughly equivalent to a Category 4 hurricane, is slamming Iceland with blizzard conditions, mixed precipitation and heavy rain. Winds have been clocked at about 70 mph in the capital city of Reykjavik, and 90 mph at the international airport in Keflavik. The forecast called for gusts of higher than 120 mph in a few locations, particularly on the western coast of the island, though conditions were improving early Friday afternoon local time.

The Icelandic Meteorological Office issued rare red warnings for parts of the country into early Friday, with orange warnings continuing into Friday night due to the strong winds and heavy precipitation, and travel was not recommended anywhere.

The National Weather Service’s Ocean Prediction Center reported that a satellite passing over the storm detected a significant wave height of 64 feet west of Ireland. This means individual waves in that area were potentially as high as 128 feet! Significant wave height is defined as the average of the highest one-third of waves in a particular period, and tends to run about half the height of single waves.

AMERICA IS SOON TO BE A POLITICAL SLAVE COUNTRY 

Original Post

Global warming , or Climate change (or whatever the new politically correct name for it is today ) is going to cost every country in the world billions of dollars as weather patterns continue to get more unpredictable  . We should have been trying to do something about it 20 years ago , instead of making fun of Al Gore. 
A lot of people are going to die.
