Original Message 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."
