Is Kim Jong Un responsible for Hurricane Irma?

Is Kim Jong Un responsible for Hurricane Irma?
Has anyone else noticed that the days Kim Jong Un set off missiles into the ocean that we've had massive hurricanes, earth quakes, and more?


North Korea said on Sunday it detonated a hydrogen bomb, possibly triggering an artificial earthquake and prompting immediate condemnation from its neighbors -- despite the rogue regime calling the test a "perfect success."

The blast, carried out at 12:29 p.m. local time at the Punggye-ri site, triggered a magnitude 6.3 earthquake in North Korea that was detected 55 kilometers north northwest of Kimchaek, U.S. Geological Survey reported. Officials in Seoul initially said it was a magnitude 5.7 quake. 
A seismic jolt on the other side of the planet had a team of experts huddled at Patrick Air Force Base before dawn Sunday, alerting U.S. and international leaders of their alarming findings.
A global network of 3,600 sensors monitored around the clock by the Air Force Technical Applications Center, headquartered at Patrick, had picked up North Korea’s underground test of a nuclear bomb.
The center helped confirm that the blast registering 6.3 on the Richter scale was 10 times more powerful than North Korea’s previous nuclear test a year ago, and one of the most powerful nuclear tests detected since a ban took effect more than 20 years ago, Air Force officials told FLORIDA TODAY.
“It lit up the international network, for sure,” said Glenn Sjoden, the center’s chief scientist. “There’s no mistaking the fact that there was a very large event in North Korea at their nuclear test site.”
As Hurricane Irma approaches Florida, AFTAC, as the center is known, continues to analyze last weekend's test while watching out for any new activity.
Patrick Ai Force Base is best known for the 45th Space Wing, which on Thursday will support SpaceX’s attempt to launch a national security mission from Kennedy Space Center. Patrick’s 920th Rescue Wing recently helped rescue more than 230 Harvey victims in Houston.
AFTAC is perhaps a less visible tenant at the base, but its electronic eyes on the ground, under water, in the air and in space play a critical role in reporting nuclear explosions to the Department of Defense and Vienna-based Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization.
About 850 of the center’s roughly 1,000 employees, about half military and half civilian, work at Patrick. Their motto: "In God we trust. All others we monitor."

But despite the fact that tropical cyclones can release as much energy as 10,000 nuclear bombs, they spring from the same humble beginnings as any storm: a disturbance caused by converging winds. Atlantic hurricanes--named for Huracan, an evil deity of Central America's Tainos people--typically form when a thunderstorm blows off the coast of Africa, travels out to sea and gathers power over the eastern Caribbean. The storms, however, require high humidity, light winds in the upper atmosphere and warm seas to spin up to cyclonic strength. If one of these ingredients is missing, the storm will peter out.
These conditions prevail most strongly in the North Atlantic between August and October, but that is a relatively brief season. Conditions off the Pacific coast of Asia, in contrast, are ripe for typhoon formation between June and December. As a tropical disturbance grows in strength, surface pressure in the area around the storm falls. And the characteristic swirling around the storm's eye--actually a low-pressure vortex that compels higher pressure air downward, where it is warmed by the sea, fueling storm clouds that produce driving rain--intensifies.

Because warm seas and even warmer air in the lower atmosphere power these storms, some researchers have predicted that more and stronger tropical cyclones will result from increasing temperatures worldwide. The most recent addition to this growing body of evidence links climate change and increasing storms by statistically comparing near-surface air and Atlantic sea-surface temperatures with hurricane intensity over the last 50 years. Already, tropical cyclones are forming where they have rarely been seen before: Catarina (pictured above) formed in the South Atlantic in March 2004, the first such storm ever monitored.
