This September two atypical hurricanes originated in the Atlantic: the first one, at a very high northern latitude, but then proceeded westward, as hurricanes usually do. The second one, Hermine, originated nearer to the equator, but then, unexpectedly, moved towards the north following the african coastline and heading, it seemed, to the Canary Islands. There was not any record of something similar happening before, which puzzled the experts, and alarm calls were made for protection.

Finally, Hermine did not hit the islands, but it sent heavy rainfalls that broke all the previous records of rainfall in the islands for September, reaching even 500+ liters per square meter in 3-4 days at certain points.
Climate change ?

Scientists don't exclude the possibility of similar unrecorded phenomena happening in the past, and many of them won't go to the extreme of declaring this a direct consequence of a human-driven climate change, but they will underline also the fact that too many extreme phenomena are happening worldwide in the last decades and in an accelerated way.

The pic was taken at El Puerto de la Cruz, in Tenerife, which, by the way, was very much spared, the last day of the alarm.
