Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 6:00AM - 10:00AM

The 2021 Hurricane season is over on November 30th and it will end as the third most active season. There was 21 named storms, which was more than NOAA predicted at the beginning of the hurricane season.

Wanda was the last named storm of the 2021 hurricane season, but if you remember the 2020 hurricane season we made it all the way to Iota, which was the 30th named storm of that season.

Hurricane Elsa and Tropical Storms Fred and Mindy were the only named storms to hit Florida this season. Hurricane Elsa passed just to the west of the Tampa Bay area on July 7th before entering the state near Steinhatchee, which is in Taylor County, on July 8th.

The strongest storm of the 2021 hurricane season was Hurricane Ida, which had winds of 150-miles-per-hour and made landfall in Louisiana on August 29th, which was the 16th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina hitting Louisiana.
