2012 Hurricane Season - we're back!

Published on June 26, 2012 8:06 AM | Comments

Sorry for the late start but we are just back today to updating the hurricane blog and gearing up for the 2012 season. We have already had several named storms - a brief recap is below:

Tropical Storm ALBERTO - first storm of the season, popped up off the coast of Georgia, no effect on the Caribbean.

Tropical Storm BERYL - another Atlantic event, affected Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas, no effect on the Caribbean.

Hurricane CHRIS - way out in the North Atlantic, no effect on the Caribbean.

Tropical Storm DEBBY - a Gulf of Mexico storm, forecast to cross Florida and enter the Atlantic, but well north of the Caribbean and the Bahamas.

So 4 storms but nothing yet in our region - just a reminder of how big the area is that can be affected by tropical weather and that just because there is a "hurricane" somewhere doesn't mean that the Caribbean is under threat.

Here is a link to the 2012 archive at the NHC if you want to see more info about these storms: 2012 Tropical Cyclone Advisory Archive

And don't forget that if there is a storm you can send us pictures, videos, links or text updates to publish and share here. Just email webmaster@caribbean-on-line.com with any pertinent information. Thanks!
