Warming may bring hurricanes to Mediterranean

Europe, but a new study shows a 3 degrees Celsius (5.4 degrees

enclosed Mediterranean in future.

"This is the first study to detect this possibility," lead researcher Miguel
Angel Gaertner of the University of Castilla-La Mancha in Toledo, Spain,
told Reuters on Monday.
