Cancun, Q.R. – November 30 marks the end of another hurricane season for all of Mexico. Both the Pacific and the Atlantic coasts made it through the season with a few forecaste storms that in the end, caused no damage.
With the formation of 11 tropical systems for the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean Sea, Cancun and the Riviera Maya sailed through the season. The National Weather Service had predicted eight named storms for the region, however, activity exceeded their forecasts. Rather than eight, the region named 11 tropical systems Ana, Bill, Claudette, Danny, Erika, Fred, Grace, Henry, Ida, Joaquin and Kate.
Tropical storm Ana formed early, on May 6, before the traditional start of the Atlantic hurricane season.
Jaime Villasano Espejo of the State Coordination of Civil Protection said, “The hurricane season ends November 30 and presented us with 11 tropical systems, six of which were tropical storms, four hurricanes (two heavy and two basses) and a tropical depression.” He added that, “This concludes the 2015 hurricane season.”
On the Pacific coast of Mexico, hurricane season runs from May 15 to November 30, while on the Atlantic side, it begins June 1 and ends November 30.
