With only days into the start of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season and the formation of three (3) Tropical Storms, the 2020 season has already been marked as historic by Disaster officials and Meteorologists.
According to iflscience.com, Cristobal is the earliest a third named storm has ever formed in an Atlantic Hurricane Season on record, with the third named storm typically brewing later in the season around August.
The Season officially began Monday June 1st and will end on November 30th.
However, the formation of Arthur and Bertha, the first and second named storms for the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season, marked the 6th consecutive year that storms have formed before the official start of the season.
Director of Nevis’ Disaster Management Department (NDMD), is Mr. Brian Dyer.
On Tuesday, Cristobal was a tropical depression, located over southern Missouri, with maximum winds of 30 mph.
The storm was tracking northward at about 25 mph and continued to lose wind intensity. The main impact from Cristobal was localized heavy rainfall.
Elsewhere, an area of low pressure is expected to develop along a frontal boundary to the east of Bermuda over the next couple of days, according to accuweather.com. Mr. Dyer made this plea to the public.
