    Dangerous and very active Atlantic hurricane season 2021 expected: Above-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the continental US coastline

    Last year, there were so many named storms that they ran out of names to call them. They're saying that it could be a repeat of that this year.

    It's kind of surreal in a way, as the Eastern states get pounded with hurricanes and rain, while the Western states are dry as a bone, facing drought and potential water shortages.

    ...and wild fires. Last year the West was dealing with fires while the East was dealing with storms.

    It is beautiful isn’t it. I have been through several hurricanes and I happen to enjoy it. I understand they can be devastating for some people, especially those living in flood prone areas, but I love the wind, and the rain, the thrill of it all, the cataclysm, the renewal, etc. It is awe inspiring experiencing what our weather is capable of. I feel a greater respect for the earth and appreciation of my life because of it.

    I'll have my collection of N95/KN95 masks ready for the fires.

    Boring names. Couldn't they think of anything more exotic?

    Perhaps they could start naming them in honour of climate change-denying politicians. :D

    I wonder at the sciences studying changing environmental conditions when they are imposing studies to change environmental conditions.

    The copying copying effect.

    Illogical really.

    A reaction is a hurricane or tornado. Heavenly owned by its purpose. What happens if natural cannot act naturally. It would increase the reaction until reactions cause another effect.

    And I would wonder what would happen if multi reactions increased. I thought science said cause then effect changes.

    Ownership said by humans that God O the planet owned the heavens. Which is not science. I know as a thinking human that status and claim owner was stated lawful by human imposition.

    To reason why God was given status and purpose involving human law.

    The meaning of God and law to me makes common sense reasoning when all each of us owns is one self human life.

    So I wonder why human law allowed our heavens to become changed.

    We live in New England and fortunately not many hurricanes make it this far and those that do are broken up by the hills and mountains. Haven't had a tornado since 1953. Drought is rare.

    Henri and Claudette sound like cheese-eating surrender hurricanes.

    Probably only a threat to mollycoddled Generation Z snowflake types.

    I'd also be ****ing furious if I got killed or even maimed by Hurricane Julian. If you got done by a mincing fop of a hurricane like that you'd never be able to show you face in public again.

    Perhaps they're put off by your long, frigid Winters.

    It's an improvement

    Hurricane Mike Tyson or Hurricane Vlad the Impaler would surely have a better chance of getting people to take them seriously and evacuate their cities than Hurricane Julian would.

    Imagine trying to make an insurance claim.

    What exactly happened to your house, sir?
    "Hurricane Julian blew the roof off"
    Of course it did sir, I'm just going to type that up on my invisible typewriter...
