“The Costliest And dreadful Affair”…Hurricane 1

It was only two months back when European debt crisis   wreked havoc on EU and the rippled effect was seen in other countries as well. Till date, many nations are still fighting with the financial problem, at the same time met department gave another jolt to the world and announced the unwelcomed and killer hurricane season.


Hurricane…. derived from huracan, the Carib god of evil is once again become the headlines and racing the heart beat of people of affected areas, economists , government and all.  The forecast is expecting for a very active 2010 season with above-normal threats on the US coastline. This news is not at all encouraging for world economy, especially when world economy is under attack of financial tsunami. Let’s have a look on the details of this deadly hurricane which is a regular visitor every year and give crucial impact on the health of economy…


“Timings, which does matter”… generally hurricane season starts from June and end in October. But very peaked season is from “August to October”; especially “early to mid-September” is the pinnacle. But of course, it is not mandatory that Mother Nature will follow the same calendar every year; remember hurricane Wilma hit on 21st and 22nd October, 2005. Weather specialists are predicting an above-average activity for the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season. Alex, first hurricane of 2010 already showed its existence.


“Very attention-grabbing naming in chronological order”… they are named alphabetically. First tropical storm or hurricane starts by A, then B…and in this order. List contains hurricane names that start from Ato W, but exclude names that start with a “Q” or “U.” There are six lists which rotate. Changes occur in list only when there is a hurricane, which is extremely dangerous, after that the name retires and another hurricane name replaces it. Even in 2010 list, there are certain changes; viz- Charley was replaced by Colin, Frances was replaced by Fiona, Ivan was replaced by Igor, and Jeanne was replaced by Julia.


“Category…grading of damages”…there are five category of storms viz.1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Category 5 storms are the most catastrophic hurricanes that can form. On an average it forms once in three years, if we talk about Atlantic basin. Only four times — in the 1960, 1961, 2005 and 2007 hurricane seasons — have multiple category 5 hurricanes formed. However, on larger canvas between 1924 and 2007, 32 hurricanes have been recorded at category 5 strength. An average season usually has 11 storms, six hurricanes, and two major hurricanes.
