2016 hurricane season is over

The United States National Weather Service says that this year’s Atlantic hurricane season will be remembered for the devastation caused by Hurricane Matthew that reached a category five, the most powerful in a decade, and left several hundred people dead in Haiti. “Matthew has been the first category five hurricane formed in the last five years since Felix in 2007 and it has beaten the record as the most powerful hurricane that developed so far South in the Atlantic Ocean,” according to NWS spokeswoman Arlena Moses. As well as Haiti, Matthew also affected the eastern coast of Cuba, the west of the Dominican Republic, the north of Colombia, the Bahamas, the southeast of the United States – where some cleaning up continues to this day – and even parts of Canada in its last stages. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami has still not calculated the final death toll from Matthew but it is estimating at least 1600 dead, making it the most deadly hurricane since Stan in 2005.

A normal Atlantic hurricane season, which begins at the beginning of June and ends on 30 November represents an average activity of between 11 and 12 tropical storms and five hurricanes. Nonetheless this year there were 15 storms seven of which became hurricanes (Alex, Earl, Gaston, Hermione, Matthew, Nicole and Otto) and three of these storms reached a major category of 3, 4 or 5 on the Saffir-Simpson scale.
