New word I found today on CNN:


People in Greece and Turkey are bracing themselves for a rare and powerful hurricane-type storm in southern Europe's Mediterranean region, due to hit this weekend.
The storm, often called a "Medicane" (Mediterranean + hurricane) has features similar to hurricanes and typhoons.
