Readabout possible category 6 hurricane in Tampa Florida.
Thescientists ran hurricane models within six different global 
climatemodels, and the results were mind-boggling.
Theresults showed that three vulnerable areas of the world are 
at riskfor a "high-end" Category 5 tropical cyclone by the end of 
the 21st century due to the Earth's changing climate: Tampa, Florida; 
Cairns, Australia; and the Persian Gulf.
Thesepotential Category 6 hurricanes may be up to 14 times more 
likely by2100, according to the study.
Theworst-case potential future hurricane put out by the climate models 
for the Tampa Bay area is unlike anything ever seen – maximumsustained 
winds of 233 mph with a minimum central pressure of 830millibars, 
traveling parallel along Florida's Gulf Coast, producing adevastating
