MÉRIDA, Yuc.- The tropical cyclone season begins on June 1 and there will be 21 storms with their own name, including 8 hurricanes, which are forecast for the Atlantic basin, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico, as revealed by the Protection Directorate Civil based on forecasts from Colorado State University, in the United States.
Four of the hurricanes could become major categories three, four of five, with sustained winds of at least 178 kilometers per hour, projections for the June 1-November 30 hurricane season indicate.
The names of the cyclones, according to the order of their appearance, are: “Ana”, “Bill”, “Claudette”, “Danny”, “Elsa”, “Fred”, “Grace”, “Henri”, “Ida “,” Julian “,” Kate “,” Larry “,” Mindy “,” Nicholas “,” Odette “,” Petter “,” Rose “,” Sam “,” Teresa “,” Victor “and” Wanda “.
Nine are estimated to become tropical storms, and four more into category one and two hurricanes.
