  • Sub-Tropical Storm Vs. Tropical Storm… What’s The Difference?

    05/27/2018 6:55:38 AM PDT · by BBell · 30 replies
    Friday morning, the National Hurricane Center in Miami issued a statement announcing the first named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season. Subtropical Storm Alberto had formed in the northeastern Caribbean, just off the coast of Cozumel, Mexico. Most of us are familiar with the term “Tropical” storm. But what exactly is a “Sub”tropical storm? A subtropical storm is actually a hybrid of an extratropical storm, and a tropical storm. So we’ll identify all three types of storms. EXTRA-TROPICAL STORM An extratropical storm has a cold core at its central point. It is often associated with frontal zones, such...

    A budding tropical disturbance has the potential to strengthen significantly and reach Florida and the Bahamas with strong winds, coastal flooding and torrential rainfall during Sunday and Monday. Only one of two active Atlantic tropical systems poses a significant threat to land during the next 10 days. That system, dubbed 99L, has the potential to become Tropical Depression Eight and Tropical Storm Hermine this week. The disturbance, currently located about 1,000 miles southeast of Miami, is forecast to take a general west to west-northwest path near Puerto Rico on Wednesday night and near Hispaniola on Thursday.

    After Hurricane Patricia menaced Mexico as one of the strongest storms to ever make landfall, officials said early reports showed no major damage Saturday as the once-ferocious system deteriorated into a post-tropical cyclone. Howling winds had battered trees, flooded streets and ripped down power lines overnight Friday in coastal areas of southwestern Mexico — but the posh tourist resorts, bustling ports and fishing villages dotting the Pacific Coast region appeared largely unscathed as the storm soaked mostly sparsely populated stretches. Rescue workers were still assessing the damage from the record-setting hurricane, and there were no immediate reports of casualties. Mexican...

    The Federal Emergency Management Agency on Thursday denied Hawaii’s request for a major disaster declaration after Tropical Storm Iselle. Iselle made landfall over the Big Island’s isolated and rural Puna region nearly three weeks ago, knocking down trees and power lines. FEMA denied the request because “it has been determined that the damage from this event was not of such severity and magnitude to go beyond the capabilities of the state, affected local governments and voluntary agencies,” the agency wrote to the state Thursday. …
