New Hurricane Category

It feels like the last hurricane season just ended and before we know it, we’ll be preparing for the next one.

Scientists are thinking about making changes to the upcoming Hurricane Seasons…

As of right now, the highest hurricane category is a Category 5. We’ve seen a few of those and know the kind of impact they have… now scientists are saying hurricane’s are only getting stronger, which means we need to have a new category for them… a Category 6!

To make it to Category 6, the hurricane will have to have 196mph winds.

Maybe you’re like us and you were thinking “The hurricanes will never get that powerful!” BUT if you look at our past hurricanes, at least 5 of them have been that strong. That’s since 2013!

We better get our hurricane snacks ready!
