Sure, it’s the middle of hurricane season. But this is ridiculous.
The six named storms whirling at once this week in the Atlantic and Pacific set a record, forecasters reported.
“While Humberto and Kiko were spinning in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific, four new tropical cyclones formed Tuesday: Imelda and Jerry in the Atlantic Basin, and Mario and Lorena in the Eastern Pacific Basin,” the Weather Channel reported.
This combined number of active storms in both basins was believed to tie a modern record, set in September 1992, according to National Hurricane Center forecaster Eric Blake.
He tweeted Tuesday that “they are forming like roaches out there.”
“It’s not something that you see all the time, but not unheard of, either,” said Weather Channel meteorologist Danielle Banks.
According to the National Hurricane Center, there have been as many as five active Atlantic tropical cyclones at once, which occurred Sept. 10-12, 1971. In the eastern Pacific, on Aug. 26, 1974, there were five simultaneous named storms of at least tropical storm strength, Phil Klotzbach, a tropical scientist at Colorado State University, told weather.com.
September is the peak month for hurricane and tropical storm activity in both the Atlantic and Pacific, NOAA reports.
“In September, ocean temperatures are nearly at their yearly peak, and shearing winds that can rip apart tropical storms and hurricanes are typically at their lowest,” the Weather Channel reported.
