African Dust Helps Prevent Tropical Storms from Forming

7/27/2018 (Permalink)

Have you noticed that this year's hurricane season has been quieter than normal? There have not been as many tropical storms as there usually are, and part of the reason is because of this season's African dust.

The amount of African dust over the eastern and central Atlantic Ocean is inhibiting tropical storm development. Although this dust occurs almost every year, some years there is more dust than others. The dust is created in the Sahara Desert and is blown through the Caribbean Sea and Gulf Coast by strong winds. This dust creates extremely dry air over the ocean which can prevent tropical storms from progressing. 

This year the African dust has prevented a lot of tropical storms from forming so far. The rest of the hurricane season is also expected to be quieter than usual.

Total Solar Eclipse in Greenville, SC

8/4/2017 (Permalink)

On August 21st we wish for no storms in sight and clear skies as Greenville, SC experiences the total solar eclipse. A total solar eclipse occurs when the moon moves in between the sun and earth. This total solar eclipse is extremely rare because it is the first time the path of totality exclusively will cross the United States from coast to coast in 99 years. It also is only crossing the United States, and this is the first time a total solar eclipse is visible from coast to coast of the United States and no other country in 241 years. 

The eclipse is expected to pass through Greenville around 2:38 PM and will last approximately two minutes and thirty seconds. The state of South Carolina could have anywhere from 500,00 visitors to 2 million visitors. 

In order to view the eclipse you need eclipse glasses certified by ISO. The only moment when it is safe to watch the total solar eclipse without safety glasses is when the moon completely blacks out the sun. 

There are multiple events happening in Greenville, SC to watch the total solar eclipse and SERVPRO of West Greenville County can't wait to attend a few of them! Let's hope the sky is clear and there aren't any storms that occur on August 21st in Greenville, SC. Be sure to experience this once in a life time opportunity and watch the total solar eclipse!!
