Atlantic hurricanes’ rapid growth spurts are intensifying

This article discusses rapid intensification of storms because of climate change. A quote:

“Hurricane Maria, which devastated the Caribbean in September, took just three days to grow from a tropical depression to a fully fledged category 5 storm as it marched across the Atlantic Ocean. A study now suggests that this type of dramatic growth spurt has become more pronounced in hurricanes over some parts of the Atlantic during the past three decades.”
