The article presents the author's opinions regarding the active hurricane season in 2005 in the U.S. In 2005, Hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma caused extensive damage along the U.S. Gulf Coast. According to Joel Paz, a climate specialist, early hurricane predictions varied in 2005. Around 12 to 15 named storms and seven to nine hurricanes were expected in 2005. The 2005 hurricane season was highly active. Experts believe that there could be several reasons for the active hurricane season. The hurricanes could have been caused due to a 20- to 30-year cycle in ocean temperatures and tropical activity.
