Global warming behind 2005 hurricanes [25 Apr 2006|02:57pm]

The record Atlantic hurricane season last year can be attributed to global warming, several top experts, including a leading U.S. government storm researcher, said on Monday.

Report: Northeast due for a major hurricane [21 Mar 2006|09:50am]
seshen
The Northeast is ill prepared and long overdue for a major hurricane, the private forecaster AccuWeather said in a special report on Monday, a little more than two months before the start of hurricane season in the Atlantic.

The report also predicted that the Texas coast from Corpus Christi to the Louisiana border is likely to be the target of more hurricane activity than usual over the next 10 years.

BTW, is this community going to remain and be renamed for 2006?

New community, 2005 Hurricanes going into "Archive" [21 Mar 2006|10:21am]

Ladies and Gentlemen,

  I'd like to take a moment to thank each and every on of you for your participation in the 2005 Hurricanes community. I'm sure we all benefited from your contributions to the very active 2005 hurricane season discussion, I know I certainly have!

  As the community mod/admin I'm officially announcing the "Archive" status of this community, I.E. I would ask that no new topics be created, (although if you want to contribute to old discussions go ahead). As we transition into a new 2006 Hurricane season it's best if we move on to the new community created for that season at 2006hurricanes created by aloudallowed for that purpose.

Again, Thank you all for participating!
-Your friendly neighborhood admin.

Aha! From the CNN article on Zeta, which is still out there:




The 2006 season officially begins June 1, but any tropical storms that form at any time this year would be part of its tally. The first name on the list is Alberto.




I win the $64,000.



Forecasters predict that hurricane seasons will be more active than usual for at least another decade.




But exactly what that means is really anyone's guess. Straw, anyone?

the $64,000 question [05 Jan 2006|12:56pm]

What I want to know is...



If a new tropical storm forms now, will they continus with Greek alphabet or go to 2006 names even though the season doesn't start until June 1?



And is this community now to be called 2006hurricanes? It's kind of a shame to abandon it just because the year has changed.

Attention OUTspoken southern folks!! [22 Dec 2005|03:37pm]

Hello all.
I am home for the holidays!
Its been a very interesting trip.
My first time to see the Mississippi Gulf Coast/New Orleans since the storm.
(I left for Seattle in August)
I haven't really trusted outside news and was anxious to come home and find out what is really going on here.
Soo many emotions.
I'm sure I don't have to go into detail.
Here is what I am interested in though.
share!Collapse )

It won't ever happen, but does anybody know how NHC would name tropical storms/hurricanes if all the Greek letters had been used?

well, OK, just ONE more... [29 Nov 2005|11:11am]

A brutal and record-setting season of hurricanes that pounded the United States and devastated the lives of tens of thousands ends November 30, at least on paper. But as the season is supposed to be winding down, Tropical Storm Epsilon formed today over the central Atlantic Ocean. Including Epsilon, there have been 26 named storms this year, surpassing the record of 21 set in 1933.

Tropical Storm Delta forms in Atlantic [23 Nov 2005|04:49pm]
seshen
The 25th tropical storm of a record hurricane season formed on Wednesday in the central Atlantic and could strengthen into a hurricane, but it posed no immediate threat to land, U.S. forecasters said.

The storm had maximum sustained winds of 60 mph (95 kph) and could become a hurricane with winds of at least 74 mph (119 kph) in the next 24 hours, the center said.

Rare historic documents lost to Katrina [03 Nov 2005|07:47am]

As Hurricane Katrina approached, local historians were confident a vault filled with precious pre-Civil War pictures, maps and documents cataloguing the history of this Gulf Coast community would be safe.

Beta Becomes A Hurricane [29 Oct 2005|09:10am]
seshen
Beta was upgraded to a hurricane by the National Hurricane Center early Saturday as it continued to whip the Colombian island of Providencia with high winds and rain.

Beta is expected to hit mainland Nicaragua as a strong Category 2 hurricane by Sunday.

speculation [28 Oct 2005|08:27am]
seshen
Do you believe there is any chance of Beta moving into the Gulf and affecting the U.S. as a hurricane? I'm crappy at estimating these things. It's supposed to hit land first as a Cat 2.

Isla Mujeres in Mexico has thus far received, and this is not a typo, SIXTY-FOUR inches of rain from Hurricane Wilma.
