Hurricane season equals record

18th Oct 2005

The Caribbean looks set for more troublesome weather following the emergence of the season’s 21st tropical storm, Wilma. Wilma is on target to become a hurricane by the end of the week before spinning off in the direction of Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. Wilma ensures that a 70-year record is equalled for the largest number of storms in a season. She is the 21st named storm of the 2005 season. Wilma reared her head in the north-eastern section of the Caribbean Sea early on Monday at once posing a threat to the Cayman Islands who suffered a rough blow from Ivan in 2004.
There are reports on the BBC website that The National Hurricane has said that ‘Wilma is moving erratically, with sustained winds of 65km/h (40 mph), and is expected to bring heavy rain in the Cayman Islands and Jamaica.’
