This looks one of the worst hurricane storms in living memory, surely has already claimed lives in Bahamas, the US East coast is next in line. Many say climate change is to blame.

It is. There were 21 storms like this in the entire 20th century. In the 21st century we've already had 12.Its simple science. Hurricanes form over warm water. The warmer the water the greater the chance of major hurricanes occurring. Climate change leads to warmer waters.

What do you mean by storm ‘like this’? Hurricane data doesn’t seem to really support the climate change in the basic sense that you’ve put it; the Atlantic was certainly warmer last year than it was in 1995 or 2000 or 2001 yet there were fewer hurricanes.
