Haiti Action.net – Port au Prince, Haiti — Today’s downpour in Haiti was, yet another, reminder that this summer is forecast to be one of the worst hurricane seasons in the last one hundred years.
What it doesn’t warn the displaced residents in the streets of Port au Prince is that — as early as Monday, June 21st — Haiti may stand directly in the path of what could be Hurricane ALEX. In the middle of Hurricane Alley 2400 miles away a “broad area of cyclonic circulation” — currently, 92L Invest — has a high probability of becoming tropical depression in the next 48 hours according to the National Hurricane Center (NHC) in Miami, Florida.
ALEX will be the first named storm in what is expected to be a very busy 2010 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Another broad region of thunderstorms moving off of the west coast of Africa shows another ominous pattern that could develop into another tropical cyclone before ALEX hits the Windward Islands. Currently, the upper level winds of the Eastern Caribbean could weaken ALEX once it passes the Windward Islands.
