Natural disasters will increase, says UN meteorologists

Global warming is likely to bring more tidal waves, floods and hurricanes, leading meteorologists said on Monday.
"What we know is that global warming is very likely to lead in the future to more frequent tidal waves," Reuters reported the secretary general of the World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) as saying on Monday.
"Heavy precipitation events are very likely to become more frequent … and it’s likely that hurricanes and cyclones will become more intense," Michel Jarraud said.
He was speaking at the start of a four-day conference of the WMO, a United Nations specialised agency for weather, climate and water.
