Hurricane Season is over. Dr. Klotzbach wraps it all up.
Following three quiet Atlantic hurricane seasons in a row, there is considerable uncertainty as to whether or not we remain in an active AMO/THC phase (Klotzbach et al. 2015). Another big questions for 2016 is what impacts the current strong El Niño event will play in next year’s hurricane season. While we anticipate that the strong El Niño will have dissipated by the peak of next year’s hurricane season, there is the potential for lingering atmospheric impacts.
For the 2016 hurricane season, we anticipate four possible scenarios.

Join Us in the Effort!
#HurricaneStrong is a national hurricane resilience initiative to save lives and homes through collaboration with leading organizations in the disaster safety movement. The effort comes at a critical time as public awareness about hurricane readiness is declining due to fewer land-falling storms in the Atlantic.
The collaboration offers empowering hurricane safety and mitigation information through business summits, digital channels, events, home improvement store workshops, media outreach, school lesson plans, and a social media campaign featuring a #HurricaneStrong “Pose”.
