First Hurricane of the Season: Adrian is a Category 4

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

 

The 2011 hurricane season is officially started with the formation of a category 4 hurricane named Adrian.

Adrian is located off the southwestern corner of Mexico with winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph) centered around 310 miles (505 kilometers) south-southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico.  Adrian is not expected to affect land and ships in the area are under a high seas warning.

The Atlantic and Pacific hurricane seasons run from June 1 until November 30.  Experts predict that this hurricane season will produce 12 to 18 named tropical storms in the Atlantic zone and that 6-10 of them could become hurricanes.

If you live hurricane prone areas you should have an evacuation route pre-planned as well have a hurricane kit in your home in the event that evacuation is not possible.  To find out more information on hurricane kits and readiness.
