Weather tracker: how did Hurricane Fiona maintain intensity so far north?Tropical systems often strengthen in warmer areas of Atlantic, but can also intensify elsewhere in certain conditionsLate last week, Canada’s Atlantic coast was hit by Hurricane Fiona, with maximum sustained winds in the region of 90mph (145km/h).

China growth lags Asia-Pacific for first time in decades as World Bank cuts outlookEast Asia and Pacific annual growth forecasts downgraded from 5% to 3.2% as China’s economy cools, largely due to zero-Covid policyCovid-zero policies and the housing market crisis have put China’s economic growth behind the rest of the Asia-Pacific region for the first time in more than 30 years, according to World Bank forecasts.In a biannual report released on Tuesday, the US-based institution said the annual growth outlook for East Asia and the Pacific region had been downgraded from 5% to 3.2%.
