Hurricane Season 2020

Sep 14, 2020 | 0 comments


As if this year wasn’t challenging enough, a new historical record is now being added: As of today we have 5 Tropical Cyclones active in the Atlantic area and 3 more storm systems are developing. There hasn’t been anything like this since 1971, when there were 6 cyclones within 2 days. We are keeping an eye “TEDDY” and hope that it too will still turn north over us.


The formation of the tropical storm Teddy today continues the series of the earliest formations of the mentioned storms. Every storm since “E” like Edouard was the earliest form of this particular letter.
The old record for storms named “T” was October 4, 2005 during the hyperactive Atlantic hurricane season of 2005. Now two names are left, Vicky and Wilfred, before the National Hurricane Center has to start using the Greek alphabet.
This only happened once, in 2005, when there were 28 named storms that ended with tropical storm Zeta. So as far as we are concerned, the year 2020 can really take a break now!
