2016 Hurrican't Season

(1/1)

nacho:
Six months early!


--- Quote ---Alex is not just the first named storm for the 2016 calendar year. It's also the first named storm to form in the Atlantic in January since 1978, the first January-born hurricane since 1938, and just the fourth known storm to arrive in the month since records began in 1851.

So, Matthew is gearing up to wallop Charleston. "Worst hurricane in 52 years" was a headline I saw.

Strongest and most persistent since 1964. A million people have been evacuated from the Florida and Carolina coasts. Apocalyptic wasteland for those left behind...some stunning photos, really. Though NOAA says it'll blow itself out and hit the coastline at a Cat 2, maybe a Cat 3. So no biggie for the US. Also expected to bounce away and give the Mid-Atlantic a miss.

Poor Haiti, though.

There's another one forming right behind Matthew, so that'll be fun.
