2015 Hurricane Season

Maya Anderson, Reporter

We’re only two weeks away from the next hurricane season to start which runs from June 1 to November 30. The average number of tropical depressions, tropical  storms and hurricanes is about four to five per year. El Nino causes warmer temperatures in the Pacific northern hemisphere and warm water makes storms spawn and survive.

There is a 90-percent chance that El Nino will continue through this summer and a 80-percent chance through next year. It won’t mean that we would get a direct hit, only that there is a higher chance of tropical cyclone formation for this hurricane season.

It is time for you to prepare your emergency kits for this upcoming hurricane season.
