Medicane

A rare meteorological phenomena, to cause problems in Greece over the weekend. The weather has been extreme this year.

I thought it was some kind of walking aid.
Strange name for a hurricane.

Re: Medicane

The weather has been extreme because of climate change.

Medicanes are regular though. There are about 1-2 of them every year so not really attributable to climate change imo.
