Hurricane Names For 2014 – Is Yours On The List?
The good news about the upcoming hurricane season is that forecasters believe it won't be a very active one. The bad news, it only takes one hurricane to make the season a devastating one. We are hoping that the scientist are correct in their assumption that El Nino conditions will keep the tropics a hostile environment for the formation of tropical cyclones.
One of the most notable tropical forecasts from Colorado State University suggest that this year's tropical season will generate 9 named storms. Three of those named storms will reach hurricane status and one of those three will be a major hurricane. Many of the other respected tropical forecast organizations are in agreement with the Colorado State outlook.
If we did get nine named storms this hurricane season that would take us all the way down to the letter "I". So let's see what the names for this year's season are.
Let's hope the season is a quiet one and if tropical systems do develop they will stay far out to sea. But remember a tropical system does not have to be a major hurricane to be devastating or deadly. You might remember Tropical Storm Allison that basically sat over southeast Texas for several days an inundated Acadiana with tremendous rainfall. Regardless of what Mother Nature throws our way we will do our best to keep you and your family safe and out of harms way.
