Quebec in major hurricane crosshairs?

Quebec in major hurricane crosshairs?

Saturday, September 4, 2021 at 5:05 pm – Hurricane Larry, currently owning his own in the Atlantic Ocean, will eventually make his way to eastern Canada – and Quebec may be successful.


Larry is currently in category 3 on the Sapphire-Simpson scale, but may benefit from it in the coming days. It is expected to reach Category 4 stage on the northern route.

Stable winds up to 205 km / h have been recorded so far, with more violent winds. It is currently about 24 km northwest. Moving at speed.

In the next few days off the coasts of Bermuda, the Bahamas and the West Indies, there could be a spectacular eruption before heading to the eastern United States.

If it is currently in the mid-Atlantic Ocean (and, therefore, has only limited effects), it may change in the next few days.

In fact, its precise trajectory is decisive: it is not impossible for Larry to get in the way of Newfoundland and Labrador and the Maritimes, with large amounts of precipitation and strong winds blowing in its wake.

Larry possible final trajectory

While Larry remains only grazing Quebec, the province still faces side effects. Gaspe Point and the Magdalene Islands are unique to see.

It should be noted, however, that at present many factors are uncertain. The situation should be closely monitored by the end of next week.

Hurricane season peaks now

Hurricane season peaks in the Atlantic Basin, especially due to warmer waters causing more violent systems. It’s worth noting: Larry behind Grace and Ida is already the third major hurricane of the season. The overall hurricane season has reached an average, and it is far from over.

The 2021 season equaled the 2011 record of seven named tropical disturbances in the Atlantic between August 10 and September 1. Only five other seasons in the Atlantic have twelve or more notable interruptions as of September 1 – including record years 2005 and 2020.
