Fierce Storm to Hit Mediterranean

  • It has been estimated that a rare and a very powerful storm is likely to hit the Mediterranean and move towards Europe. Medicane, a term given to the combination of Mediterranean + hurricane, has the same characteristics as that of typhoons and hurricanes. These storms are expected every year in the frequency of 1 or 2 in the months of September and October. It is likely to reach there this weekend. Over the sea, it might pick up wind speed and develop eye in the center.
