Hurricane season blows on


Kiley Riggs

The 2019 Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. The areas covered include the Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. We have had 13 storms and 5 major hurricanes. There had been some light hurricanes, but also some major hurricanes. When we think it’s coming to an end! Another one pops up. For example, we just had a hurricane a couple of weeks ago. This morning they found rotation on the coast of New England. If you don’t know what a hurricane is, it’s a tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 74 mph (64 knots) or higher. Here is the list of hurricanes and tropical storms that have happened in the past months.
