I don’t like living along the Gulf Coast after the last 3 years of overly active hurricane seasons.
It seems like even our tropical storms are getting more intense with effects beyond easy wind speed.
Due to the fact that the wind speed is the only factor in the Safford-Simpson grading scale, you could have a tropical storm with the air pressure as well as storm surge potential of a category a single hurricane, despite having a wind speed lower than a hurricane. It’s spine-chilling, as well as the images you see on doppler radar get increasingly more startling each year when a random storm outpaces the singles from the year prior. I moved down here to get away from the extremely harsh winters up north, but now I’m considering going back. The worst I distraught about up there was snow storms as well as tornadoes, but the latter is a real occasion with all sorts of tropical cyclones, since they often create tornadoes when the storms make landfall. Can you imagine the nightmare of an unrelenting hurricane that is only made worse by the prospect of tornadoes happening at the exact same time? I thought of this occasion Last week with the hurricane that was nearly a direct hit for our area. The eye of the storm made landfall only 50 miles south of our town. I have all of my marijuana growing as well as cultivation equipment stored in a shed in our backyard. I had to store it away after both of us moved into this new house that we’re renting. Despite the shed getting hurricane wind damage, all of my marijuana growing equipment inside was thankfully unscathed. I put everything in sizable supplier garbage bags, so nothing got wet either.
