USA- Express.co.uk writes that Hurricane Willa struck the United States and Mexico as the most recent hurricane of the 2018 season. The storm comes on the heels of the massive damage caused by Hurricane Michael, but the hurricane season for the Atlantic is not over yet, making many fear that more destruction could be on its way.
The hurricane season for the Atlantic is from June 1, 2018, until November 30, 2018. The Atlantic Ocean, the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea make up the region most impacted by the storms.
The National Weather Service states that hurricanes are any tropical cyclones that have maximum sustained winds that reach at a minimum, 74 miles per hour.
The National Hurricane Center keeps lists of names which they use for each hurricane. The upcoming storms could be named “Oscar, Patty, Tony or Valerie.” The names can be recycled unless the storm is particularly costly or deadly.
Hurricane Michael was a devastating storm that struck the United States in October and killed at least 32 people. Fatalities from the storm came from Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia. Whole towns were destroyed by the intense winds and surge. Towns in Florida’s panhandle were the most severely hit.
Hurricane Willa was the most recent severe storm, and the third Category 5 storm to happen in 2018. So far, no deaths have been reported in connection to Willa.
According to Mark Bourassa, a meteorology professor at the Florida State University, says that predicting how many more hurricanes we could see in 2018 is difficult. Because of the warm weather occurring this season, there is a decent chance that another storm could take place. Until the storm begins to form though, it is difficult to predict where that storm might strike.
