Nyack Enters The 2017 Hurricane Season With Above Average Storm Activity Predicted
Dated: August 14 2017
As the memory of Super Storm Sandy slowly fades throughout the various River Towns, yet another Hurricane season is upon us. Colorado State University’s Tropical Meteorology Project leads the way in tropical storm predictions. They are looking for an above average season with 16 named storms and 8 hurricanes. 12 is the norm, but warm Atlantic waters are driving their thinking. There have been 5 named storms so far this year, though none have grown into a hurricane. We also know, as Sandy painfully proved on October 29th, that the season is longer than just the summer. 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 2017 Hurricane season.
