Last week Hurricane Ida caused major damage to Louisiana and the Northeast.  This is the season for increased cyclonic activity around the globe.  How are hurricanes, typhoons, and cyclones related?

There is a measurement called the Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE).  How is it measured? Are storms becoming more intense?  Did you know there is a formula for measuring the strength of storms and storm seasons?  Let's see if this formula for measuring the intensity of storms makes any sense?
