Hurricane, Cyclone alert: Which US city faces major threat from hurricanes?

India’s 1st Import Export Consultant

Ever taken that elusive vacation in those beautiful islands off the coast of Florida? Yes, we are discussing about Key West in Monroe County and hundred other islands, all near the Florida coast. While the pristine beaches, good sunny weather and relaxing getaways are surely an attraction, there is something else to plan ahead, when you take that holiday next time.
According to data from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), 117 cyclones have passed this region in the last 200 years or so.

What are the ideal conditions for the formation of a hurricane?

Generally, hurricanes are near oceans where warm ocean air rises above and moves into the land from high pressure areas to low pressure areas. This is when generally, rain clouds are forming.

In the case of Key West and surrounding islands, they are the meeting point or the convergence point of the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean and the Florida Straits. The warm water around this tropical region can also aid the development of tropical cyclones.

It is generally in the months of September and October that the formation of these hurricanes is the strongest.

According to the same data, Hyde County in North Carolina experienced about 116 cyclones in the same period and Dare County experienced close to 111 cyclones in the same period.

What can go wrong for tourists?

According to various estimates, around 5 million tourists visit Key West every year. The hurricane can impact their travel plans often leading to delayed/cancelled flights. Further, their activities in the island could be impacted as various advisories could restrict the tourists to their hotel rooms, often leading to shortage of food items and other critical items.


Q1. What can tourists do?
Assess or ask travel agents for a weather advisory for the months, travel is expected. Additionally, they should stock up on critical items such as medicines and food items. It is best to avoid travel during the months when hurricanes lash across the region.

Q2. Are hurricanes increasing due to climate change events?
. There is a growing body of studies suggesting an increased frequency and stronger hurricane formation due to climate change and global warming in the US. This is according to research conducted by various universities and think tanks.
