CycloneCenter Participation for June 2014

June kicked off the North Atlantic and Eastern Pacific Hurricane season. Your participation really showed. This was the most active month since December 2012.

Also, we’re developing a couple of presentations for the American Meteorological Society’s Annual meeting in Phoenix, Arizona. The meeting isn’t until January, but the planning and preparation begins now, so please perform classifications to help make the presentations a success.

In June, mcrisalli1 earned the coveted Baja award with 959 classifications. Also, there is a big change on the Bretarn board with a new participant in the number one spot.

For June 2014, we had 19,937 classifications of 604 storms from 2239 citizen scientists.

Stay informed through our blog, Facebook and twitter because we’ll be announcing a new campaign soon to accomplish something exciting!

Thank you to all for making a great success!!
