Way Is Cleared For Hurricanes MIAMI, Fla. (AP) - Nature's iortn barrier, the Bermuda ridge, inafly is moving north, leav'mg he way clear for tropical storms o erupt into hurricane*. It's the first time in a genera- j«rr that the hurricane season is ALUMINUM SCREENS AND DOORS «"« CotfMl Eoilf • LfctnMd • Idrnhill Soles Co. Cart Ht MMS fehr 0r Nif, HE so late, the Weather Bureau said Wednesday. According to the weatherman, hurricanes stem from a combination of conditions. But they have a hard time developing while the barrier is down, as long as the high pressure Bermuda Ridge stands across the southern Caribbean sea. Recently the ridge began its northward push. In its wake the nest of hurricanes lay ready. The only element lacking in the low pressure zones just north of South America was an easterly wave, the fcinfc hi the atmosphere (hat could natch into a tropical storitt. } So far this season — which began officially June 15 — a fewj easterly waves have turned up. But they couldn't get past the barrier. Tht last time the season was so late was in IMl. That year, the only storm on record was born September 14. When the right conditions for hurricanes occur early in the season, 1932 for example, hurricanes are more numerous. That year the first sfnrm swirled out May 5. After that, five more storms and Five hurricanes boiled up. This year could turn out like ,last year, when the Bermuda ridge slipped down the sleeve of | the Florida peninsula and smothered the Caribbean until late in August fcy the first of September only one hurricane had been recorded. Then, the atmosphere abruptly reversed. The Bermuda ridge moved northward. Tropical storm activity picked op. Hurricane Carla reared out of the Caribbean and across the Gulf of Mexico and battered Texas. Weafntrmen explained the Bermuda ridge can move north only when the continent's prevailing westerly winds let up. During the summer, the westerly winds usually meet the easterly winds nf the Bermuda ridge .somewhere about Cape Hatteras. N. C. This year, the westerly winds dropped far south and covered most of the Florida peninsula. I Now they are moving to their 1 normal position. Teacher Here Will Serve At Workshop \ Dr. William M.
