Vastness of debris
Calm eye with raping wide path
Her name, Katrina!
June 1st marks the beginning of the yearly vigil for the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico as the 2011 Hurricane Season commences. At least six research groups, including the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predict we are due for an above average season – 3 – 6 Major Storms for the Atlantic – Gulf Coast regions.
The breakdown prediction during the 2011 season, which spans June 1 to November 30, NOAA is forecasting 12-18 tropical storms, 6-10 hurricanes and 3-6 major hurricanes with winds of 111 mph or greater.
On a personal note – I hope their predictions are far from reality!!
