Travelers Warned About the Upcoming Hurricane Season
Every year many traveling plans and travelers are affected by the outbursts and mood swings of Mother Nature. Even though the Hurricane Season started promptly with Alberto and Beryl, first named tropical storm of the year, it is predicted that this season will be one of normal activities. In fact, nine to fifteen tropical storms are expected to form, with approximately four to eight of them evolving into hurricanes.
Each year, climatic instabilities give rise to frequent Tropical Storms starting June 1st till November 30th with a peak of activity from beginning till mid-September. Most of the Atlantic Basin weather occurrences: 78% of Tropical Storms; 87% of minor category 1 and 2 hurricanes; and 96% of major hurricane, category 3, 4 and 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale, happen between August and October.
