Forecasts Say Major Hurricane Likely In October - LA Times
Meteorologists examining the conditions that spawned hurricanes Rita and Katrina say there is a strong likelihood that another intense hurricane will occur in October.

And while late-season storms tend to track eastward toward Florida or don't make landfall at all, the experts don't rule out the possibility of another major storm targeting the battered Gulf Coast.

Researchers also warn that the country should brace for 10 to 40 more years of powerful storms because of a natural ocean cycle in the midst of the most active hurricane period on record.

"This has been the seventh hyperactive year since 1995," Stan Goldenberg, a meteorologist with the Hurricane Research Division of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, said this month. "Not every year is going to be like this one, but there's going to be plenty of active years to come."

1. The hurricanes will stop ...
... after an ice age gets underway as a result of thermohaline collapse.

"Daddy, tell me again about the time when cold northers didn't reach down to Brazil!"

3. Truth be told,
... I'm not sure insurance companies will be around in 150 years. At least not the ones in the northern half of N America and Europe north of the Alps and Pyrenees.

Cheers
