As Floridians continue to evacuate in droves and Bahamians prepare to assess damage in the days to come meteorologists worldwide are taking note of a seemingly angry Atlantic Basin. For the first time in 7 years we had 3 active hurricanes, Irma, Jose; and Katia. In 2010 it was Igor, Julia and Karl.
