The storm has transitioned to an extratropical storm
system, having become absorbed in a large frontal system.
In the Italian island of Sardinia, extratropical storm
named Ruven brought more than 385 millimeters (15 inches) of rain in less than 24 hours, killing at least 18 people.
Changes globally in tropical and extratropical storm
intensity and frequency are dominated by interdecadal to multi-decadal variations, with no significant trends evident over the 20th century.
Recent coastal battering by hurricanes and extratropical storms
poses questions about coastal habitability and the real economics of coastal development.
