Hurricane Season: One for Record Books — Almost

wea00454_2A few months into this year’s hurricane season, it looked like a record was in the making.  As of September 11th, it appeared that 2013 would mark the Atlantic’s latest “first” hurricane of the season. But Mother Nature had a different plan in mind. Just three hours prior to the record-setting time, the winds of Humberto hit 75 mph, thus making the storm officially a hurricane.

Not a record, but still notable. Normally, the Atlantic would have experienced three hurricanes by this same date. Also interesting, NOAA predicted that 2013 would be a more active hurricane season than normal. Experts caution, however, there is still plenty of time left for violent weather. The hurricane season, which began June 1, runs through
November 30.
