Shortlisted for the 2020 International Booker Prize Now in paperback, Fernanda Melchor’s Hurricane Season is “a bilious, profane, blood-spattered tempest of rage” (The Wall Street Journal), that casts “a powerful spell” (NPR): “a narrative that not only decries an atrocity but embodies the beauty and vitality it perverts” (The New York Times) The Witch is dead. And the discovery of her corpse has the whole village investigating the murder. As the novel unfolds in a dazzling linguistic torrent, with each unreliable narrator lingering on new details, new acts of depravity or brutality, Melchor extracts some tiny shred of humanity from these characters—inners whom most people would write off as irredeemable—forming a lasting portrait of a damned Mexican village. Like Roberto Bolano’s 2666 or Faulkner’s novels, Hurricane Season takes place in a world saturated with mythology and violence—real violence, the kind that seeps into the soil, poisoning everything around: it’s a world that becomes more and more terrifying the deeper you explore it.
For Fig’s dad, hurricane season brings the music. For Fig, hurricane season brings the possibility of disaster. Fig, a sixth grader, loves her dad and the home they share in a beachside town. She does not love the long months of hurricane season. Her father, a once-renowned piano player, sometimes goes looking for the music in the middle of a storm. Hurricane months bring unpredictable good and bad days. More than anything, Fig wants to see the world through her father’s eyes, so she takes an art class to experience life as an artist does. Then Fig’s dad shows up at school, confused and looking for her. Not only does the class not bring Fig closer to understanding him, it brings social services to their door. As the walls start to fall around her, Fig is sure it’s up to her alone to solve her father’s problems and protect her family’s privacy. But with the help of her best friend, a cute girl at the library, and a surprisingly kind new neighbor, Fig learns she isn’t as alone as she once thought . . . and begins to compose her own definition of family. Nicole Melleby’s Hurricane Season is a radiant and tender novel about taking risks and facing danger, about friendship and art, and about growing up and coming out. And more than anything else, it is a story about love—both its limits and its incredible healing power.
USA TODAY bestseller Hurricane Season is the story of one family’s unconventional journey to healing—and the relationships that must be mended along the way. Betsy and Ty Franklin, owners of Franklin Dairy Farm in southern Alabama, have long since buried their desire for children of their own. While Ty manages their herd of dairy cows, Betsy busies herself with the farm’s day-to-day operations and tries to forget her dream of motherhood. But when her free-spirited sister, Jenna, drops off her two young daughters for “just two weeks,” Betsy’s carefully constructed wall of self-protection begins to crumble. As the two weeks stretch deeper into the Alabama summer, Betsy and Ty learn to navigate the new additions in their world—and revel in the laughter that now fills their home. Meanwhile, record temperatures promise to usher in the most active hurricane season in decades. Attending an art retreat four hundred miles away, Jenna is fighting her own battles. She finally has time and energy to focus on her photography, a lifelong ambition. But she wonders how her rediscovered passion can fit in with the life she’s made back home as a single mom. When Hurricane Ingrid aims a steady eye at the Alabama coast, Jenna must make a decision that will change her family’s future, even as Betsy and Ty try to protect their beloved farm and their hearts.

The images in Hurricane Season are taken in the southern part of the federal state Louisiana in the United States. In this peculiar landscape live millions of America's poorest citizens. It is as if nature itself indicates the level of segregation - the lower the country level is, the greater the proportion of black and poor. Every year these areas are flooded by the summer and autumn storms that trikes Louisiana. When these storms develop into major hurricanes the poorest and most low-lying parts suffer the hardest. Floods are a natural part of life and the inhabitants have in a fatalistic way adapted to the frequency of the hurricanes.
"There's always a point in the season when you're faced with a challenge and you see what you're capable of. And you grow up." -- J.T. Curtis, head coach, John Curtis Christian School Patriots On Saturday, August 27, 2005, the John Curtis Patriots met for a grueling practice in the late summer New Orleans sun, the air a visible fog of humidity. They had pulled off a 19-0 shutout in their pre-season game the night before, but it was a game full of dumb mistakes. Head coach J.T. Curtis was determined to drill those mistakes out of them before their highly anticipated next game, which sportswriters had dubbed "the Battle of the Bayou" against a big team coming in all the way from Utah. As fate played out, that afternoon was the last time the Patriots would see one another for weeks; some teammates they'd never see again. Hurricane Katrina was about to tear their lives apart. The Patriots are a most unlikely football dynasty. There is a small, nondescript, family-run school, the buildings constructed by hand by the school's founding patriarch, John Curtis Sr. In this era of high school football as big business with 20,000 seat stadiums, John Curtis has no stadium of its own. The team plays an old-school offense, and Coach Curtis insists on a no-cut policy, giving every kid who wants to play a chance. As of 2005, they'd won nineteen state championships in Curtis's thirty-five years of coaching, making him the second most winning high school coach ever. Curtis has honed to a fine art the skill of teaching players how to transcend their natural talents. No screamer, he strives to teach kids about playing with purpose, the power of respect, dignity, poise, patience, trust in teamwork, and the payoff of perseverance, showing them how to be winners not only on the gridiron, but in life, and making boys into men. Hurricane Katrina would put those lessons to the test of a lifetime. Hurricane Season is the story of a great coach, his team, his family, and their school -- and a remarkable fight back from shocking tragedy. It is a story of football and faith, and of the transformative power of a team that rises above adversity, and above its own abilities, to come together again and prove what they're made of. It is the gripping story of how, as one player put it, "football became my place of peace."
Now a USA Today and Amazon Charts Bestseller! “A story both powerful and enchanting: a don’t-miss novel in the greatest southern traditions of storytelling.” —Patti Callahan Henry, New York Times bestselling author When her grandmother’s will wrenches Sara back home, she learns more about Margaret Van Buren in the wake of her death than she ever knew in life. After her last remaining family member dies, Sara Jenkins goes home to The Hideaway, her grandmother Mags’s ramshackle B&B in Sweet Bay, Alabama. She intends to quickly tie up loose ends then return to her busy life and thriving antique shop in New Orleans. Instead, she learns Mags has willed The Hideaway to her and charged her with renovating it—no small task considering her grandmother’s best friends, a motley crew of senior citizens, still live there. Rather than hurrying back to New Orleans, Sara stays in Sweet Bay and begins the biggest house-rehabbing project of her career. Amid drywall dust, old memories, and a charming contractor, she discovers that slipping back into life at The Hideaway is easier than she expected. Then she discovers a box Mags left in the attic with clues to a life Sara never imagined for her grandmother. With help from Mags’s friends, Sara begins to piece together the mysterious life of bravery, passion, and choices that changed her grandmother’s destiny in both marvelous and devastating ways. When an opportunistic land developer threatens to seize The Hideaway, Sara is forced to make a choice—stay in Sweet Bay and fight for the house and the people she’s grown to love or leave again and return to her successful but solitary life in New Orleans. “Two endearing heroines and their poignant storylines of love lost and found make this the perfect book for an afternoon on the back porch with a glass of sweet tea.” —Karen White, New York Times bestselling author

"This is an excellent examination of the ways wealth, gender, and color can shape and at times create mental and emotional fractures. Verdict: A great title for public and high school libraries looking for books that offer a nuanced look at patriarchy, wealth, and gender dynamics." —School Library Journal (starred review) "Bromfield may have made a name for herself for her role on Riverdale, but with this debut, about a volatile father-daughter relationship and discovering the ugly truths hidden beneath even the most beautiful facades, she is establishing herself as a promising writer...this is a must." —Booklist (starred review) In this sweeping debut, Asha Bromfield takes readers to the heart of Jamaica, and into the soul of a girl coming to terms with her family, and herself, set against the backdrop of a hurricane. Tilla has spent her entire life trying to make her father love her. But every six months, he leaves their family and returns to his true home: the island of Jamaica.

Book 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season Description/Summary:
The 2020 Atlantic hurricane season was extremely active, with 30 "named storms" (tropical storm or higher strength), including 13 hurricanes, which is more than double the long-term average of 12 named storms and 6 hurricanes. Several records were set (e.g. number of named storms) and the Greek alphabet was used for the second time on record (in the past only in 2005) to assign a name to the tropical storms and hurricanes. The Atlantic hurricane season (North Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico) officially starts on 1 June and ends on 30 November, with the highest activity from August to late October. However, in 2020, two tropical storms formed in May, before the start of the season, and the last month of the season was particularly active with two major hurricanes: ETA and IOTA. The 2020 season is the fifth consecutive Atlantic hurricane season above-average and several conditions contributed to make the 2020 record-breaking season possible, including La Niña which developed during the peak of the hurricane season and enhanced the hurricane activity in this basin. Every year the tropical cyclones (TCs) affect millions of people around the world, including several vulnerable islands of the Caribbean area and Central America, leaving a trail of destruction that requires the international assistance of the humanitarian community. In this report, the 2016-2020 Atlantic hurricane seasons and the extremely active 2005 season have been analysed, considering the impact on the affected areas and the international humanitarian support. Moreover, in 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic emergency influenced the TCs preparedness and response activities, creating a multi-risk scenario and increasing the vulnerability. Since 2011, the Global Disasters Alerts and Coordination System (GDACS) estimates the impact of all the TCs occurring worldwide and timely issued RED alerts for the most destructive events, like for ETA and IOTA in 2020, which devastated Central America.
A hurricane strikes while Grace and her family are on vacation in Florida—can they make it safely through the night?

There was going to be a hurricane and it was going to be a big one! As the roads shut down and the rain begins, how will they make it through the storm?
The subfloor creaked under phantom footfalls and the shadow people moved around on the periphery and the weed grinder kept shifting a couple inches to the left of where you last set it down. Maybe our ghost was feeling neglected, or maybe it was amped up off the storm's energy. We just let it go, because what the fuck else can you do? At some point, you learn to live with the things that haunt you.
Book Estimating the Length of the North Atlantic Basin Hurricane Season Description/Summary:
For the interval 1945-2011, the length of the hurricane season in the North Atlantic basin averages about 130 +/- 42 days (the +/-1 standard deviation interval), having a range of 47 to 235 days. Runs-testing reveals that the annual length of season varies nonrandomly at the 5% level of significance. In particular, its trend, as described using 10-yr moving averages, generally has been upward since about 1979, increasing from about 113 to 157 days (in 2003). Based on annual values, one finds a highly statistically important inverse correlation at the 0.1% level of significance between the length of season and the occurrence of the first storm day of the season. For the 2012 hurricane season, based on the reported first storm day of May 19, 2012 (i.e., DOY = 140), the inferred preferential regression predicts that the length of the current season likely will be about 173 +/- 23 days, suggesting that it will end about November 8 +/- 23 days, with only about a 5% chance that it will end either before about September 23, 2012 or after about December 24, 2012.

Key West is the end of the world for some. A variety of people come to the island for an assortment of reasons. Our reason, aside from celebrating Reno's bachelor party, was to experience 'Margaritaville', not the bar - but that place in your mind or dreams where everything is perfect. The sun always shines, the people are always happy, there is no business talk and your worries simply drift away. Every day is a holiday and every meal is a feast. This is a place where you can escape. The sun energizes the soul, nighttime elevates the heartbeat, laughter fills the air, and you end up talking for hours with your friends you brought along or just met. You fall asleep to the sound of the sea quietly rushing in and out and awake to the sound of seagulls and the smell of sea salt. That's why we found ourselves walking down Duval Street that night. It was all present here, at least that is how we envisioned our journey to the Southern Zone. We were wrong.
