Hurricane Season Outlook by Wayne Neely - May 26, 2017 - 7:49:04 PM

Hurricane-Bahamas-S.jpg
In less than a week, the 2017 North Atlantic hurricane season will officially begin and during this time most Bahamians are a bit uneasy due impart to the recent powerful and very devastating Hurricanes Matthew which struck many of the islands in the NW Bahamas(New Providence, North Andros and Grand Bahama) and Joaquin which struck many of the islands in the Central and SE Bahamas (Acklins, Crooked Island, Rum Cay, San Salvador, Inagua and Long Island). I had a chance to speak to several of the hurricane experts within the region about the outlook for the 2017 season.

Colorado State University (CSU) hurricane researchers Phil Klotzbach and his team in April were predicting a slightly below-average Atlantic hurricane season in 2017, citing the potential development of El Niño as well as recent anomalous cooling in the tropical Atlantic as primary factors...
