Hurricane Celia Update: Tracking on Twitter and National Center

It’s never nice to report news of bad weather. After all, I think I can speak for everyone when I say we’d prefer the weather to be bright and sunny every day. However, we do unfortunately have news on bad weather, with reports of a hurricane forming off the coast of Acapulco.

According to a recent article at news.bbc.co.uk, the first hurricane of the 2010 Pacific season is said to have formed off the coast of Mexico, the US National Hurricane Center – NHC – has reported. Hurricane Celia, as it’s been named formed over 350 miles south of the tourist resort.

With the wind speed of up to 75mph, the NHC has classed “Hurricane Celia” as a Category One hurricane. According to an NHC report, the Pacific hurricane season normally continues until November, which means we still have a fair few months until it’s all over.

There are also fears at the moment, that hurricanes in the Atlantic – which usually tend to begin around August – may disrupt the ongoing efforts to stem the BP Gulf of Mexico oil spill, which occurred off the coast of the United States.

As you can very well imagine, people are desperate to learn more information on Hurricane Celia now, and are searching for updates online. And that is where social networking sites such as Twitter come in, as they have updates being posted all the time. You can also visit nhc.noaa.gov.
