Global Warming Golden Oldie!
Since not a single major hurricane* has hit the US since 2005 (the year of Katrina), the Big Climate PR machine must be bored. So, they are now reclassifying the damage from Katrina and the other major hurricanes in 2005 as being caused by global warming. The article even uses the phrase "stronger, more frequent" (present tense) to refer to 2005 -- clearly deceptive language given the subsequent drought of major hurricanes that continues up to today.
*A "major" hurricane is one with Category 3 or higher winds. Sandy was a Cat. 1.
