A report by Paul Huttner forMPR News.
MPR News chief meteorologist Paul Huttner visited Cuba last week and got a lesson on how climate change is affecting the island country.
That long Cuban coastline is extremely vulnerable to storm surge. Hurricane Irma’s surge pushed several feet of water in the streets of Havana.
One person Huttner met on his trip was Jose Rubiera, a meteorologist. Rubiera, a hurricane expert, said his big concern is the growing link between warmer oceans and more rapidly intensifying hurricanes.
