[quote:Humanitarianlike:MV81MTQwMDA0Xzk0MzYyOTIwXzFDODczQ0Iz] [b]Tropical Storm naming trivia[/b] [i]"In the summer of 1947, the U.S. Air Force began naming tropical storm systems. Now, 75 years later, we look back on the first named hurricane to ever strike an American state. You know Katrina, Harvey and Sandy. Before that came Andrew, Hugo and Agnes. These are some of the most notorious hurricanes that have ever impacted the United States. But how is it that we know them? Well, by their names, of course. But while the formation and devastation of tropical storms may be as old as the oceans themselves, the process of naming the natural beasts isn't nearly as dated. In fact, this year's 2022 season marks just the 75th anniversary of a named hurricane striking U.S. soil. [b]When's the real anniversary?[/b] The history of when storms officially started receiving names is a muddied one. According to the National Hurricane Center (NHC), people in the West Indies were naming hurricanes for hundreds of years based on "the particular Saint's Day on which the hurricane occurred," thus infamous hurricanes Santa Ana in 1825, San Felipe in 1876 and San Felipe again in 1928 ran roughshod across Puerto Rico. But it wasn't until the 1947 Atlantic hurricane season, 75 years ago this year, that U.S. officials officially labeled tropical storms with names from the Joint Army/Navy Phonetic Alphabet. However, since the names were limited to internal use and not included in public bulletins, they aren't included in the NHC's Hurricane Databases (HURDAT). The NHC, in fact, doesn't even mention the 1947 season in its page covering the naming history of tropical cyclones. Like many others, the NHC considers 1953 to be the first season names were used to identify Atlantic storms, as that was the year an organized list of names was assigned alphabetically to storms. The 1950 Atlantic hurricane season is also considered by some to be the first year storms were given designated names, as that was the first-year names appeared in public advisories."[/i] https://www.accuweather.com/en/hurricane/its-been-75-years-since-the-first-named-hurricane-struck-us-soil/1188635?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=accuweather [imgur]https://imgur.com/AE7qKa8[/imgur] [/quote]
May 2022's Gulf Loop is looking a lot like it did in May of 2005 (Katrina's year).
May 13th 2005
May 13th 2022
May is picking up right where August 2021 left off. Hurricane Ida in August, the same dates as Katrina. What carnage these two wrought.
"The Atlantic hurricane season starts on June 1, and the Gulf of Mexico is already warmer than average. Even more worrying is a current of warm tropical water that is looping unusually far into the Gulf for this time of year, with the power to turn tropical storms into monster hurricanes.
It’s called the Loop Current, and it’s the 800-pound gorilla of Gulf hurricane risks.
I have been monitoring ocean heat content for more than 30 years as a marine scientist. The conditions I’m seeing in the Gulf in May 2022 are cause for concern. One prominent forecast anticipates 19 tropical storms – 32% more than average – and nine hurricanes. The Loop Current has the potential to supercharge some of those storms."
