The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration of the United States revised the long-term statistics.
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has changed the average number of storms in the Atlantic hurricane season. For this purpose, we used data for a thirty-year period: from 1981 to 2020.
Before this, the agency used the twenty-year period 1981-2010: then, on average, 12 storms and 6 hurricanes occurred per year, including three powerful hurricanes (with wind speeds of at least 178.6 km / h).
The number of storms and hurricanes has increased: 14 storms, seven hurricanes, including three powerful ones.
Earlier, the University of Colorado predicted that in the hurricane season-2021, which begins on June 1, 17 storms and 8 hurricanes are expected, four of which will be powerful.
