Hard to say, but NOAA and other climate change scientists are saying that intensity of storms is increasing due to climate change.
I did read that actual number of storms has not increased statically, but if gulf or other inshore waters are warmer on average, then it follows that as tropical storms approach they will not lose as much energy, could gain strength or any other logical path they take will result in more energy.
