Time to give up perhaps😔

There's a strong connection between hurricanes in North & Central Americas and the Sahara desert.

It turns out that about 83% of major hurricanes – categories 3, 4 and 5 – that hit North America share the same birthplace as Irma. Those emerging from Cape Verde are among the most powerful and longest-lived tropical storms.
