Hurricane Alex Makes Landfall in Mexico
Early in the hurricane season of 2010, we are getting some heavy activity in the Gulf of Mexico. Both Alex and Bonnie, the first two named storms of the hurricane season came close to South Padre Island, Texas. Luckily, no damage was incurred from either storm, as they both barely missed the island.
Category 2 Hurricane Alex turned west at the last moment and made landfall in northern Mexico. Heavy rain and winds swept across south Texas. Most evacuated the South Padre Island and headed inland, and when people returned they were happy to see businesses and homes left unharmed. The storm did leave a devastating impact on the Mexican coast however.
Tropical depression Bonnie formed about one week later and followed a similar path. Bonnie was a significantly weaker storm and never formed into anything past a tropical depression. Although there was not much rain they made it to South Padre, Bonnie brought great winds for kitesurfing and windsurfing, as well as large waves for surfing.
The 2010 hurricane season is predicted to have an above average amount of storms. 15 named storms are forecasted, including several strong hurricanes. One reason is the warm water in the Atlantic Ocean. This year set a record for the warmest waters recorded in the tropical and eastern Atlantic Ocean. If you are Gulf Coast or East Coast resident, now is the time to begin your hurricane preparations if you haven't already.
