After the record number of named systems in 2020, This next year will likely also be active, but probably not as much as 2020.

We'll be partnering more with Mark Sudduth and over the new year, but all the old data and image recordings will remain here. The Atlantic hurricane Season starts on June 1st, and we'll be watching both here, and our twitter and facebook feeds.

Hurricane Zeta reclassified as Category 3 storm! I recall Jim Cantore of The Weather Channel stating he couldn’t wrap his head around Zeta. It was to be about a 74 mph landfall storm, the water was cold, it was cold on top, but it intensified to almost a Cat 3. Now we know Zeta was a Cat 3 at landfall!

I’m a transplant from St. Cloud to the MS coast across the street from the Gulf. I was in Florida, my daughter was here with my Yorkie. Zeta peeled part of my metal roof back like a tuna can! I had just paid to have my front porch re-screened from Cristobal which hit in June. I left for Florida. Zeta came to visit! Shredded the new screening...spun & tilted the ceiling fans so strong they cut into my ceiling before breaking into pieces. MS folks North of me said it was their many tornadoes, also. The area became a sea of blue roofs akin to the result of our 3 storms in 2004.

Rain poured through my front door glass and side lights as if there wasn’t a door! My house is on 16” concrete piers. I received a frantic call from my daughter telling me objects were hitting the house and the house was shaking. The neighbors took both my daughter & dog in for 6 days due to no power. They have a whole house generator. The gulf water was half way up the driveway while U.S. 90 and the beach disappeared!

Being from Florida my family have been through many hurricanes, but my daughter said she had never been so frightened and prays she is never in another one.
