With hurricane season only one week away, the time to brace ourselves is near. Already experts have predicted an active season, and now one weather enthusiast is lending his voice to the call for all to be prepared.

Hurricane Ivan made a lasting impact on many of the residents in Cayman. For most it is an unpleasant and horrific time, but for Adam McDoom, it was a life changing event he embraces.

“I experienced the full power a hurricane can produce. Unlike many people, they started to hate hurricanes, I started to love hurricanes,” said Mr. McDoom.

For the last 12 years, he taught himself everything there is to know about cyclones. And now each year he tracks the storms as they develop. Forecasters say in a weeks time the Atlantic Basin will see the official start of what they expect to be a very active hurricane season.

During and interview with Cayman 27 McDoom said, “Forecasting is still a growing practice and there is always room for error. However with evolving technology forecasters are now able to predict longer periods of weather activity with greater success.” He added that forecasts are only useful if people heed the warnings. He said, “People need to listen to the forecast, and if people don’t really have so much trust in a particular forecast, well do what any logical person would do. Look at one, look at the other, look at another. See where they have common ground and then make your own assessments.”

So far this year forecasters are predicting 12 named storms, five hurricanes and two major hurricanes.
