ver wondered how hurricanes get named? We decided to find out…

Apparently, Tropical cyclones are named based on the basin of origin. A tropical cyclone that begins its life cycle in the Eastern Pacific, will be given a name from the "Eastern Pacific Names" list. And when a tropical cyclone has its origins in the Central Pacific, it will be assigned a name from the  "Central Pacific Names" list. 

So, there are two sets of names. And each set of names has 6 lists. And each list has 24 names. The lists are recycled every 6 years. For example, the names that are used this year, in 2017, will be used again in 2023.

And now you know...

Hurricane season kicks off in Cabo

Date Published:

Cabo’s  hurricane season has officially started – with 17 named storms predicted...

Yes, it’s that time all over again. Hurricane season. Officially it runs from May 15 through November 30.

And although we did have a few windy days in Cabo last week, it was definitely nothing to worry about.  The post was closed for a couple of days, and water activities have been restricted a couple of times. But nothing serious. August and September tend to be the months when there is more “cyclonic activity”.

A total of seventeen storms are expected this season. And guess what, they have all been named. Already. Talk about jumping the gun….. Storm Adrian, back on May 10, was the “first born.” The rest of the family are as follows: 

2) Beatriz  3) Calvin  4) Dora  5) Eugene  6) Fernanda 7) Creg  8) Hilary  9) Irwin  10) Jova  11) Kenneth  12) Lydia, 13) Max, 14) Norma  15) Otis  16) Pilar 17) Ramon  18) Selma  19)Todd  20) Veronica  21)Wiley 22) Xina  23) York  24) Zelda.

Anyway, of these 17 storms, 5 are likely to be hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. Of course, this is all based on weather projections, and there is no way of knowing for sure.

Also, the El Niño phenomenon may actually result in the lowest cyclonic index for 30 years. Fingers crossed. Nobody wants a repeat of Odile.

So, definitely no need to panic right now. But you should always pay attention to official warnings. Be really careful on the beach, and out on the water.

We will be keeping a close eye on everything to do with cyclones and storms. And will be bringing you regular updates throughout the hurricane season. 

We were the top site for reporting on hurricane Odile back in 2014. Check out some of the blogs we did...
