Hurricane Humberto

We finally have our first hurricane of the 2013 season, Humberto, and it was nearly a record breaker. At 4:00am it gained hurricane status with sustained wind of 75mph. This put it just 3 hours shy of setting the record as the latest “1st hurricane” of a in a year. 0The previous record was set back in 2002 when that year’s first hurricane, Gustav, formed on this same date at 7:00am. Though we have already see eight named storms so far this season, none of them have reached hurricane status until Humberto.

Humberto is expected to weaken in the next few days and fizzle out in the Atlantic.  -Greg
