It’s unusual to have two hurricanes at the same time in November

Usually, the heavy part of hurricane season ends late October. However, the fact that two hurricanes are active in the Atlantic early November is proof that hurricane season isn’t over yet. Tropical storm Lisa formed in the Caribbean on Wednesday and on the same day, Hurricane Martin formed in the north-central Atlantic Ocean. It is unusual to have two at the same time, especially in November. This is only the third time it happens since records began. It shows the waters are still warm enough to produce active storms this time of year.

Lisa made landfall in Belize on Wednesday afternoon as a Category 1 hurricane. After making landfall, Lisa weakened to a depression. Due to adequate rainfall and a subtropical climate, Belize has a thriving ag industry. As for produce, citrus, bananas, and papaya dominate the sector. At this point, it is unknown what the effect is of Hurricane Lisa on Belize’s produce sector. Hurricane Martin didn’t make landfall but is going north, potentially hitting parts of Europe later.

A third system off the east coast of Florida could develop into a tropical storm early next week. The National Weather Service Miami commented that the potential subtropical system may impact South Florida but there is still a lot of uncertainty around the development and disturbance of this system.

Hurricane season officially ends November 30th.
