NOAA Increases Chance for Above-Normal Hurricane Activity

The End of El Nino Could Boost Atlantic Hurricane Activity


NOAA forecasters monitoring oceanic and atmospheric patterns reported on August 8, 2019, that conditions are now more favorable for above-normal hurricane activity since El Nino has ended.


The number of predicted storms is also greater with NOAA now expecting 10-17 named storms (winds of 39 mph or greater), of which 5-9 will become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or greater), including 2-4 major hurricanes (winds of 111 mph or greater). This updated outlook is for the entire six-month hurricane season, which ends Nov. 30.


“Today’s updated outlook is a reminder to be prepared,” said Pete Gaynor, acting FEMA administrator. “We urge everyone to learn more about hurricane hazards and prepare now, ahead of time, so that if state and local authorities announce evacuations in advance of a storm, you and your family will have planned where to go and what to do to stay safe.”


If you’re away from your boat during the time a warning is issued or interested in having someone tie your boat down for you, then Hurricane Boat Lifts South can handle the job. If interested, go to: largomarinesupply.com/tie-down-service
