[NYTimes]Hurricane Michael Intensified Quickly, Taking Many by Surprise
Full story:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/10/us/hurricane-michael-intensification-strength.html

What began as a blip of news this past weekend — a tropical storm

“This storm is very special,” said Haiyan Jiang, an associate professor
in the department of earth and environment at Florida International
University. “It has gone through three rapid intensifications” in its

Hurricane Michael’s sharp increase in strength as it approached Florida
was due in part to its low barometric pressure, said Phil Klotzbach, a
research scientist in the atmospheric science department at Colorado
State University.
