    Good morning.

    Tomorrow marks the official end of the 2009 Hurricane Season. 2009 was a quiet year in the tropics as predicted with a typical El Nino pattern with high shear across the Atlantic and Caribbean which prevented the development and strengthening of most storms. In all there were 9 tropical storms, 3 hurricanes (Bill, Fred and Ida) with 2 major hurricanes,(Bill and Fred). On average there are 10 TSs, 6 hurricanes and 2-3 major hurricanes per year. Only Claudette and Ida made US landfalls, both as weak Tropical Storms along the NE Gulf coast. To the coastal residents’ and insurance industry’s relief no significant damage was reported from either storm.

    Wishing everyone a great holiday season and New Year,

    Matt.

    End note from Wayne Brackin:

    It turned out our trusty Medical Librarian was right, the hurricane blog was a storm repeller!  Thanks to the more than 13,000 hits and 9,000 plus readers of Weathering The Storms.  I enjoyed your comments and questions.  It was a great experiment in new media and communication for Baptist Health that proved worthy.  More to come in this space.

    Thanks so much to Roymi Membiela, Christine Kotler, Jo Baxter, Allen Montgomery, Mimi Taylor, Matt Snow, John Fernandez, Val Lopez, Felicia Carreras, Bob Ritchie, Jean Arias, Pablo Suarez, Chris Kilroy, Yuri Roldan, Terri Johnson and Brian Keeley.  You all did an incredible job, on short notice, putting this together and making it happen.
