Atlantic Hurricane Season off to a busy start with Tropical Storms Bret and Cindy

By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season is off to a busy start with Tropical Storm Cindy forming right behind Tropical Storm Bret.

This is the first case of 2 storms in the Atlantic in June since record keeping began in 1851.

However, experts say that warmer temperatures are producing more intense hurricanes.

According to ABC, some scientists are still figuring out if climate change alters how many storms brew.

In addition, the National Hurricane Center (NHC) is also issuing advisories earlier in the year.

As of today, Tropical Storm Bret was located about 235 miles west of Saint Vincent and packing winds of near 60 miles per hour.

Power outages were reported in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, with at least 130 people seeking shelters as the storm washed away one home and caused severe damage to several others.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Cindy is forecast to gain strength as it nears the Lesser Antilles.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecast that the 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season would see 12 to 17 named storms and between 5 and 9 of those storms could become hurricanes.
