I have never seen the NHEM suffer such a widespread power outage for tropical cyclones. The Atlantic has had six storms, which is a respectable amount, but no hurricanes. EPAC is doing better; they're sorely behind on major hurricanes, with none yet, but they've already had 13 storms, which is the fastest clip I can remember, of which 6 became hurricanes. WPAC is the worst of them all. Out of 17 JMA named storms, only 2 have officially become typhoons (5 if you count Rumbia, Pewa, and Trami, which were upgraded by JTWC but not JMA). 2 out of 17!!! Even the 2007 and 2011 Atlantic seasons did better than that! Does anyone know why we're lacking so severely in TC intensity throughout the NHEM?
