YES!!! it has been so obvious and noticeable lately. Actually, it's a topic my family and I discuss every couple of days.
I think you would find this relative and interesting like I did:http://www.jungleapocalypse.com/featured/smokin-joe-trainer-john-moore-was-right/ (High Winds Reported Around The World)
http://standeyo.com/ (scroll down the home page to just below the title "How to Use this Site", and on the left side news list, lots of daily news references to this phenomenon.
I think it's exactly what scripture tells us... Severe weather, and I wonder about the approaching biblical wormwood star which throws the earth's axis off and the oceans and wind currents are intensified. The size of the monster waves worldwide are also a news highlight since early December.
I enjoyed reading the references you listed also.
Thank you and God Bless You,
