As I was reading a post about Hurricane Dorian this morning, I came across an interesting fact that I quote: “According to the NOAA historical hurricane database, the only comparable Category 5 beating is the one administered to Honduras by Hurricane Mitch of 1998, which spent 12 hours within 50 miles of the island of Guanaja as a Category 5 storm.”
The National Hurricane Center is issuing reports on the recently formed tropical storm Harvey. The question is if tropical storm Harvey is coming to Honduras? While predicting hurricane paths has become quite a bit more accurate, it is still an unperfected science. The answer is we do not know! But we will keep you up to date!
The storm went due north of the projected path, and skirted the Bay Islands. The stronger North West quadrant of the storm was always on the far side of the Bay Islands and the Caribbean Coast of Honduras.
Tis that time of the year, when we can get an occasional uninvited visitor. I am talking about a tropical storm or hurricane. Tropical storm just got a name: Earl.
According to the National Hurricane Center, which is located in Miami, the Pacific Hurricane Season begins the 15th of May.
When is the best time to visit Honduras? I say between December and February. The worst time? April and May, when its hot and muggy.
