2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season very active, but doesn't tell global story

2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season very active, but doesn't tell global story

With the end of the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season yesterday, it is time to review what actually happened.

Having noticed the increasing trend in extrapolating Atlantic basin tropical cyclone activity worldwide to suggest "climate change / global warming", my mentor and I embarked on a research project to analyze global tropical cyclone data, and let it speak for itself.

Tampa, Florida - It was the first of April, and Mother Nature exacted the meanest April Fool's joke Jason Boone could have imagined.

A freak storm ripped his business, Art Studio of Tampa Bay at Interbay Boulevard and Russell Street in South Tampa, into a skeleton.

The same series of storms ripped a tent to shreds and damaged planes at Sun 'N Fun in Lakeland.

In South Tampa, the damage was bad enough to send Art Studio worker James O'Neil packing for Alaska, where he now works for a tour company. But Boone stayed and has spent the last five months trying to rebuild.

Hernando County, FL -- Hurricane season is upon us and the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office Emergency Management is looking for individuals over 18 that are interested in joining the Hernando County Community Emergency Response Team.

The next training class will begin on Oct. 5.
