More intense hurricane season announced for 2024

San Salvador, Mar 19 (Prensa Latina) The year 2024 will host a much more intense hurricane season than that of 2023, the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) warned.

Quoted by local media, Rodney Martínez, the entity’s representative for North America, Latin America and the Caribbean said that “conditions for 2024 are not going to be as benign for the region as they were in 2023”.

During a meeting of the Hurricane Committee of the Regional Association IV (RA IV), in Panama, the expert said that for the period beginning in June there is an environment for cyclones to increase.

Martínez pointed out that when the Pacific is cold, hurricanes tend to become more frequent in the Caribbean and it seems that this condition could occur in 2024.

These two conditions, he said, cold Pacific and warm Caribbean, are amplifiers of the intensity of the frequency of storms in the Caribbean, so that is why I say that last year was a year of conditions that in some ways were not so adverse for the member countries.

The 2023 hurricane season ended in November with 20 named storms and seven hurricanes, including three major hurricanes.
