In the eye of the storm

BBC's month long project Bangladesh Boat Diary ends with this note:
While exposing the apparent dangers of climate change, the BBC team were on hand to report the horrors of Cyclone Sidr.

Are the two issues connected? Might the ferocity of the storm have been weakened were it not for rising temperatures in the Bay of Bengal? Might such storms become more common in future?
The questions are accumulating but we don't seem to find the answers.
