Real Virtual Storms

I've noticed for many years (living on the Gulf coast in North America) that whenever we have a tropical storm or hurricane, I see a significant uptick in Trojans and other infections arriving at our mail server and a lot of banging on the firewall as soon as the weather turns nasty. This continues for several days after the storm and then everything goes back to normal.
