Bering Sea storm: Has global warming made Alaska more vulnerable?
Bering Sea storm winds are lashing the coast of Alaska. Sea ice extending out from the shoreline has protected the coast from past Bering Sea storm surges, but there is little such ice this year, and global warming is likely to blame.
There is never any sea ice in the Bering Sea this early in the autumn. It doesn’t start forming until after the second week in November.
