SUGAR LAND--April 12, 2021--Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--In the U.S., the Texas Gulf Coast (as well as the rest of the state) suffered severely during Winter Storm Uri, which caused widespread power outages and the shutdowns of many chemical, power and refining facilities. Having come out of this harrowing situation, the Gulf Coast and the rest of the Atlantic Seaboard may face new challenges this year. Last week, meteorologists at Colorado State University (CSU) forecast an above-average hurricane season in the Atlantic this year. The CSU Tropical Meteorology Project team is predicting 17 named storms during the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30. Of those, researchers expect eight to become hurricanes. The team predicts that 2021 hurricane activity will be about 140% of the average season.
