The 2018 hurricane season has begun and the Yucatan Peninsula, year after year, is threatened by the possible arrival of one of these meteorological phenomenons.
According to the director of Civil Protection of the State of Yucatan (Procivy), Aarón Palomo Euán, Yucatan is prepared in case a cyclone arrives, since for a month and a half they have been developing work tables that include permanent contact with the Mexican Army, who are in charge of the implementation of the DNIII Plan.
“With our first response team we already had meetings to analyze the human and material resources that we have this season,” said the state official, who added that in coordination with the three levels of government “Yucatán is ready to face a hurricane. ”
Hurricane season 2018
The Caribbean region crosses its fingers before the start of the 2018 hurricane season, with the memories of the terrible damages caused last year by María and Irma in destinations such as Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Cuba and Florida.
According to the forecasts of the National Administration of Oceans and Atmosphere of the United States (NOAA), the hurricane season in the Atlantic, which officially begins on June 1, could have an “above average” activity, featuring 5 to 9 tropical storms that could evolve into hurricanes.
According to NOAA, this year we could be facing 10 to 16 tropical storms in the Atlantic and the Caribbean Sea.
In a season considered normal, an average of 12 tropical storms are formed, out of which 6 may become hurricanes and 3 of them could turn into major hurricanes.
No “El Niño” effect
Until 2016 the main element responsible for a cyclonic activity below normal in the Atlantic has been “El Niño“, which is always present in the Pacific Ocean, and that inhibits the formation of hurricanes in the Atlantic.
