NEMO prepares for Hurricane Season

How have you been preparing for this year’s hurricane season? Most people tend to start stocking up on canned foods as well as figuring out whether they will stay at home or find shelter elsewhere. Ronald Gordon, Climatologist at the National MET Service, told us that this season may prove to be an average one.  

Ronald Gordon Climatologist, National MET Service: “The projections from the major institutions are varying a bit but overall the consensus will be for a normal hurricane season. Some of them are going for slightly below normal, some are for slightly above. The trend if you look at the average or the consensus among them will be about an average season and you mentioned El Nino. We do have a week to moderate El Nino and that has been occurring actually for the last six months I would say that we have been having this condition. What has had an impact on the rainfall in terms of how that affects the hurricane season is that it turns into suppressed activity in our area. It enhances activity in the Pacific but on our side of the ocean it suppresses activity so that would tend to favor a less active than normal active hurricane season. On average we get about twelve rainstorms for the season and of those about eight or so are hurricanes from what I recall. You have to ensure that you have a hurricane plan, that is the most important one, each family should have a hurricane plan and each institution should have a hurricane plan. In that plan they will know exactly where they will take shelter if there is an emergency. You should also know about things that you will do with your pets and livestock if there is an emergency and so on. Of course insurances, you should have insurance for your property. In terms of the oceans there is nothing out there at the moment that is of immediate concern.”

Gordon pointed out that while a few small hurricanes may form, it only take one major hurricane to cause catastrophic damage, so residents, especially those in areas prone to flooding, should keep an eye out for the warnings that the MET Service issues through NEMO.
