Hurricanes 2011: Slow, but still coming!

June 27, 2011 at 11:03 PM (Uncategorized)


A slow start so far?  Nah; no slower than usual.  It is only the end of June.  Many times, things do not get crunk until August!

Hurricane Season 2011 officially started June 1.  Yet, that does not really mean anything, as the truly necessary status of heated ocean water is not really ready at that early date.  However, with the current effects of global warming and unusually heated ocean waters, it is possible that the actual storm season could get going more quickly than anticipated.

Meteorologists with NOAA are forecasting an active hurricane season for 2011.  Based on Saffir-Simpson Scale ratings, between twelve and eighteen tropical storms are anticipated to emerge.  Anywhere from six to ten of those are expected to make the montrous expansions into fully-fledged hurricanes.  At least two of the storms are forecast to be major storms, which are Category 4, or Category 5.

We have been sort of skipping along, as far as dealing with the threat of hurricane landings.  The introductory years of the twenty-first century have delivered a startling spread of storms.  The year 2004 brought Hurricane Ivan, yet it was 2005 that dealt The Gulf Coast the devastation of Hurricanes Katrina and RitaHurricane Ike delivered despair to the Texas Gulf coastline during 2008, making landfall near to Galveston, Texas, yet spreading destruction from the Texas coastline to The Florida Panhandle.

No, major storms have not affected The United States every year.  However, meteorologists are advising that one or more intense storms will strike The Gulf of Mexico coastline, specifically targeting the previously ravaged State of Louisiana.  Forecasters with Colorado State University Department of Atmospheric Science and with The Geophysics Laboratory at Bridgewater State University are among those predicting an intense storm season, with the effects of La Niña being rendered useless to the powers of any produced tropical cyclones!
