2016 Hurricane Predictions For Nyack

Dated: September 29 2016

As the memory of Super Storm Sandy slowly fades throughout the various River Towns, yet another Hurricane season is upon us. Experts are predicting an average season with 12 named storms. We have had three storms make landfall through the month of September. We also know, as Sandy painfully proved on October 29th, that September is not the end of the dangerous period. The number of storms in any given year has no correlation to land damage. In 2010 there were 19 named storms with 12 reaching hurricane intensity, yet not a single one made landfall in the United States. In contrast, 1992 had only 6 named storms, but the one called Andrew blasted a path of death and destruction across Southern Florida. The bottom line is you can never be too prepared. Another major storm will hit the eastern seaboard; it’s just a matter of when. I hope it’s not for many years to come.

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 2016 Hurricane season.
