Our study clearly demonstrates the under-exposed power of hurricanes. One hurricane can single handed kill an exceptional drought, which has been build up in several months.
While droughts are commonly stopped by long persistent depressions, here we see a single system doing something similar in just one day. To our opinion the capacity of Hurricanes to stop drought conditions is heavily overlooked and needs more attention by the scientific community. This is one example of the natural positive strength of a hurricane.
