You mean how the hurricane stayed partially over the Gulf of Mexico so it could continue to draw in water?

What is the obvious role. There isn't one from my perspective.

Only on the level of "global warming is causing bigger, nastier hurricanes" can we make this argument, and even then, this is the first hurricane to make landfall in the US since Katrina. It's not like wrathful God is hurling hurricanes at the US every year.
