2015 On Track To Break All Time Hurricane Record

Dated: September 7 2015

As the memory of Super Storm Sandy slowly becomes more distant in Nyack, Piermont and the various River Towns, yet another Hurricane season is upon us. Experts are predicting breaking the record of 18 category 4 and above storms set back in 2004. We are in the first week of September and already have seen 15 hurricanes or typhoons of category strength 4 or above. In 2014 there were 7 storms of that magnitude in the month of September. We also know, as Sandy painfully proved on October 29th, that September is not the end of the dangerous period. A combination of El Nino winds and warm ocean temperatures are believed to be a causative factor.

For the record a tropical cyclone is when sustained swirling winds reach 74 miles per hour or above. They are called Hurricanes in the Atlantic, Typhoons in the Pacific, and Cyclones in the Indian Ocean.

Let’s all hope for a safe end to the 2015 Hurricane season.Image title
