2014 Hurricane Season for the Caribbbean

Strong 2014 Hurricane Season predicted with a total of 17 named storms, 8 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes

Global Weather Oscillations Inc. (GWO), a leading hurricane and climate cycle Prediction Company, and the only organization that was correct in predicting the weak 2013 season, recently issued its hurricane predictions for the 2014 through 2017 seasons. CEO David Dilley, says the upcoming Atlantic Basin hurricane season will be stronger and more dangerous than last year, an about face from 2013 which saw the development and strength of tropical storm and hurricane activity suppressed by hostile upper atmospheric wind shear.
