Hurricane season is upon us, but Federal forecasters have announced that it’ll be slower-than-usual because of the El Niño effect in the Pacific:
The El Nino, which warms part of the Pacific every few years and changes rain and temperature patterns around the world, will likely reduce the number and intensity of tropical storms and hurricanes, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in New York City.
Cooler temperatures on the surface of the Atlantic Ocean compared with recent years will also lower the probability of hurricane formation.
“El Nino helps to reduce the ability of storm systems coming off Africa to strengthen into tropical storms and hurricanes,” said Dr. Gerry Bell, NOAA’s top hurricane season forecaster.
We might get fewer hurricanes this summer, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t prepare our homes. There are multiple weather conditions that may occur that can cause significant damage to your home if your roof is installed poorly or isn’t repaired. After all, since the roof provides protection from various elements throughout the years, naturally, it takes a lot of abuse from the varying seasons.
