The latest forecast from the National Hurricane Center indicates that the hurricane is at or near its peak intensity, and Lorenzo should soon start to lose atmospheric support and begin to slowly weaken over the next five days….
Do Sharks Know When Hurricanes Are Coming?
Hurricanes can cause lots of environmental changes before they make landfall including high winds, storm surge, and high rainfall. They also create areas of extremely low barometric pressure which many animals can detect. For example, sharks have an organ called a ‘lateral line,’ which is a long row of small pores on each side of their body. Connected like a fluid-like canal, they sense changes in the surrounding pressure and are usually used to “feel” wounded prey. But they can also detect drops in the pressure that indicate an approaching hurricane. These ancient predators also have a very sensitive inner ear, which allows them to detect the pressure changes associated with storms…
