The volatile weather tends to contribute to more hurricanes each year. This year is expected to be the hottest on record and will likely lead to more hurricanes than previous years. Climate change does not only causes hotter summers. It also causes more winter storms and intense hurricanes to occur.
It seems each year produces more and more hurricanes. Those living along the coast, particularly along the southern coast, seem to accept that they will have to be on the look out for treacherous weather that might turn into hurricane strength. It seems an accepted way of life, and every year, it seems that more hurricanes hit land. Perhaps they feel that taking the risk of the bad weather is worth all the reward of living in paradise.
There are likely to be more hurricanes this season than last year. Although experts believe it will be average, they are still expecting more than last year. Last year, there were 11 named storms, four hurricanes, and two major hurricanes. This year, experts expect 12 named storms, five hurricanes and two major hurricane are expected this season.
Every year there are hurricanes, and every year the media tries to convince us that this is the year that is going to be THE WORST HURRICANE SEASON OF ALL TIME. After all, gotta get those ratings up. I don't think this year will be significantly off of average, the only thing that changes is if one actually makes landfall somewhere populated.
