Weathering The Storms: What We Can Expect In 2007

Submitted by MiaB

Although forecasters have predicted a fairly snowless but extremely cold winter, already in the second week of December and it seems that so far, so good. But, according for the experts, we may be in for a very blustery 2007. In fact they are predicting a busier than average hurricane season with an anticipated 14 tropical storms with 7 expected to turn into potentially ominous hurricanes.

According to some of the most noted forecasters, the 2007 storm season, beginning June 1st should give rise to 7 hurricanes that are expected to reach winds well over 111 miles per hour.

However, they note that this still remains an early and preliminary prediction and the prevailing question remains as to whether or not the El Nino conditions will continue into 2007.

The 2006 Atlantic storm season, ending November 30 was responsible for nine tropical storms, five of which turned into hurricanes. The long-term average in an estimated 10 storms, six of which can be expected to turn into hurricanes.

Additionally, 2005 yielded a record 28 storms, with 15 hurricanes including Katrina, which was responsible for $80 billion in damages on the U.s. Gulf coast, and fatalities of 1,500 devastating the city of New Orleans.
