  • Last year’s hurricane season passed off relatively quietly. Gonzalo, a Category 2 hurricane, hit Bermuda in October 2014, briefly making the world’s headlines, but it did relatively little damage, apart from uprooting trees and knocking out power temporarily to most of the island’s inhabitants.

    It is now approaching ten years since a major hurricane hit the United States, when four powerful hurricanes – Dennis, Katrina, Rita and Wilma – slammed into the country in the space of a few months in 2005.

    Is this long quiet spell evidence of a ‘new normal’ in storm activity?
