FIU: Hurricanes and earthquakes: Can one predict the other?

When three major hurricanes and just as many powerful earthquakes happen at around the same time, as they did in 2017, many wonder if they are connected.

He is spearheading research supported by NASA examining whether powerful hurricanes can trigger earthquakes.
