Super typhoon top 10 (Weather)

Although climate change is evident in terms of droughts, bushfires, erratic rainfall, and warmer weather, I wasn't convinced it was having such an obvious effect on typhoons - but this table suggests that it is. Not that there are more, but there are more super cyclones

Seven of the 10 strongest ever have happened since 2006. Five of the top seven since 2013. If this trend increases - we may be entering the age of record breaking monsters. As much as I loved my old place, not sure how my nerves would hold up dealing with a Nepartak level typhoon, or bigger, every few years


(Not sure why the wind speeds are all grouped at the same speeds)

And this is one of the main reasons I want to sell our place in Florida. I love that property, but it's just a matter of time before it gets wiped out.

EDIT: In fact, we left right after Irma, and there's a good deal of property damage that we have yet to clean up including four large downed trees and a large shed that was cut in half. It's going to be hard to sell that place unless we get that all cleaned up.

Makes you wonder how big a cyclone can potentially go - is 400kph possible?
