Especialistas prevêem época de furacões muito ativa
May 18, 2020 -
Espera-se que a época de furacões no Atlântico em 2020 seja mais
ativa que a média, com 16 tempestades tropicais. Dessas, oito podem
tornar-se furacões e quatro podem atingir intensidade violenta.
As Tropical Storm Arthur moves up the U.S. coastline, forecasters worry that it is just the first domino to fall in a hurricane season that has the potential to mirror the worst ever.
Arthur became the first named storm of 2020 when it reached tropical storm status over the weekend.
This is the sixth year in a row that a named storm has preceded the formal June 1 start of the hurricane season.
Due to a lack of an El Niño and warmer ocean water, the Colorado State University anticipate the 2020 season could be more active than the 2019 hurricane season, which delivered devastating Hurricane Dorian, massive flooding from Tropical Storm Imelda and record-smashing Hurricane Lorenzo, among other storms.
