Until now, there was no record of a hurricane forming in June or early July, so Beryl’s presence represents a phenomenon ‘that is making history’.

Until now there was no record of the formation of a hurricane in the month of June or early July, so the presence of Beryl It represents a phenomenon “that is making history” and, therefore, deserves the attention of specialists in the subject, said Claudia Rojas Serna, researcher at the Department of Process Engineering and Hydraulics at the Autonomous Metropolitan University (UAM).

The academic said that normally cyclones like Berylwhich reached category five, formed between October and September; however, this one began to manifest itself in the Atlantic from June 28.

Furthermore, “it intensified rapidly, so I think it is necessary to analyze the speed with which this cyclone evolved, although it must be considered that we are leaving the season of the ‘El Niño’ phenomenon and are entering the ‘La Niña’ season, and there we have a variation of different meteorological variables.”

Added to the above are the prolonged droughts that intensified this season, all of which “It creates the best conditions for the generation of these hurricanes”but more studies are needed, he warned.

After indicating that it is difficult to say that a hurricane can be more destructive due to the increase in temperature, he pointed out that “they can certainly be more intense, but not necessarily when they make landfall as has been seen with Berylwhich made landfall in Tulum, Quintana Roo, as a Category 2 storm.

In this sense, there are differences with Hurricane Otis, which hit Acapulco last year, in terms of the way both events evolved until they made landfall. Otis It remained at a lower intensity than when it reached the coast of Acapulco, where it “took advantage of the surface temperature and the depth of about 50 meters to remain stationary and increase its intensity.”

Instead, Beryl Yes, its intensity decreased, which has to do with the meteorological conditions at that time and with the topographic features that helped mitigate the speed of the winds, in addition to the contrasts of the currents that occur in the Gulf of Mexico and the Pacific Ocean.
