On Monday, Hurricane Beryl became the earliest Atlantic hurricane to reach the Category 5 level. This makes history as both the earliest Category 4 and Category 5 storm recorded in the region. 

Beryl brought near-total destruction to parts of the Caribbean as it churned its way across the tropics this week. It is now heading towards the United States, expected to make landfall next week.

Beryl’s emergence marks an ominous start to the 2024 Atlantic hurricane season. The season typically doesn’t ramp up until late July or August.

 Experts agree that this will be one of the busiest hurricane seasons on record. In May, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced expectations of eight to thirteen hurricanes in the Atlantic with winds over 100 miles per hour. Up to seven are expected to be classified as major hurricanes.
