Re: Three Hurricanes in a Row in One View from Space Irma Katia Jose

Hopefully the next low (low #1 on the stormpulse.com website), forming off the coast of North Africa, does not organize, or this will have dire consequences.

Please be careful

Sadly the news and media coverage seems to focus more on the wind speed strength and does not give enough emphasis to the danger of the storm surge (IMHO).

A few of our local geologists have speculated that the weight of the water displacement from the storm surge, over such a wide area, may be affecting the faultlines.

The hurricanes we experienced when I was a child were nothing like these monsters. Mother Nature reinforcing who's boss.

My best wishes and thoughts to all in the affected zones.
The weather channel and weather network have been talking a lot about storm surge with lots of graphics to emphasize the power of surges.

Re: Three Hurricanes in a Row in One View from Space Irma Katia Jose

Hopefully Irma will have lowered sea temperatures a bit leaving Jose less to feed on. I wouldn't want to be trying to predict anything. Four hurricanes in 2 weeks isn't normal so it's unlikely anything will follow historical paths either.
