More Hurricanes Predicted for 2006

Wednesday, December 07, 2005
Another active hurricane season is in store for 2006 in the Atlantic Basin, the fourth consecutive year there will be an above-normal number of storms, according to a Bloomberg report. Of 17 named storms next year, nine will become hurricanes and five those will be major storms with winds of at least 111 miles (178 kilometers) per hour. The 2006 hurricane season probably will not see as many storms make landfall as this year or in 2004, the report said. Twenty-six named storms, of which 14 became hurricanes and seven major hurricanes, made 2005 the most destructive hurricane season ever. Source: Bloomberg
