NASA shared a stunning image of Hurricane Dorian in 2019 taken from space on Wednesday to welcome the arrival of the Atlantic hurricane season. Since records, Dorian is the strongest storm to hit the Bahamas. In a lengthy Instagram post, NASA uses five tips to explain how it prepares for this year’s hurricane season. June 1 marks the beginning of the Atlantic hurricane season, and the US government’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predicts that this year’s number of storms will be above average.
The ability to see storms from space; view the inside of hurricanes in 3D; climate change and hurricane behavior; the agency’s ability to monitor hurricane damage; and help communities prepare for and respond to storms. In another blog post, he said that NASA is developing new technologies and missions to study the formation and impact of storms. NASA scientists will study the impact of climate change on storm behavior.
He said that the intensity of more storms is increasing rapidly due to the “rapid increase” and the wind speed increase of 35 mph in just 24 hours. He added that the data collected by the researchers will be made available to the public for free for regional and local governments “to prepare for and understand the impact of these disasters.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predict that between June 1 and November 30, there may be 13-20 Atlantic storms this season, of which 6-10 may become hurricanes, including 3-5 major hurricanes. But forecasters from government agencies said they don’t expect storm activity in 2020 to reach historical levels.
Last year, a record 30 named storms were discovered during the hurricane season, 12 of which made landfall in the United States.
