This year no hurricanes have been yet recorded in the Western Atlantic.
And that has never been seen since 1914.
According to scientists, two factors working against hurricane development, wind shear and dry air. And these have been quite prevalent from the Gulf of Mexico into much of the Caribbean all summer long.
In contrast, nine hurricanes have swept through the eastern Pacific… Is El Niño to blame?
Meanwhile zero hurricanes have been recorded in the adjacent western Atlantic.

Do you think the western Atlantic hurricane drought will continue for a while?
