This year's hurricane season officially starts tomorrow. Meteorologists have predicted that this year's season will be above normal. Twenty-one names have been suggested for the bad boys and girls. Previously storms wre named after women but from 1979 men.s names were added. The female and male names alternate.
The names of the storms for this year's Atlantic huricane season are
Arlene, Bret, Cindy, Don, Emily, Franlin, Gert, Harvey, Irene, Jose, Katia, Lee, Maria, Nate, Ophelia, Phillipe, Rina,Sean, Tammy, Vince, and Whitney.
Last year Tomas created havoc on the island.It is being mentioned as the worst to hit St. Lucia. A number of deaths were recorded and the landscape of Bexon and more so Fond St.Jacques was changed.
This year it has been mentioned will be vey active interms of the storms and Lucians better be on their guard.
The island is still recovering fom the ravages of Tomas and God help us if we were to get another similar hit. [remember Grenada got two hits in a year].
We are not immune to storms and hurricanes. A preparedness plan need to be put in place, and people please insure your homes. That's the way to go.
