    In new record, three Category 4 hurricanes spin simultaneously in northeast Pacific

    Sunday was the first time that three Category 4 hurricanes have been present at the same time in the entire northeast Pacific Ocean.

    They're not the only thing spinning; consider the implied allusion to global warming. "Ye spotted snakes with fork-ed tongues, weaving spiders come not near!"

    And yes, bring on the rain, Nino!

    Records only go back to 1971.

    The info diagram in the article describing annual accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) starts at 1971. There is a reason for that; reasonable accurate records of ACE date back to that time. That information is readily available in Wikipedia.

    It's true that 44 years doesn't sound like a long time period but one suspects there may not even be anecdotal evidence that such a thing happened before. I'm sure it probably has but clearly the thing is extremely rare and that was the point of the article.

    I certainly hope California gets rain from the El Nino that is brewing. California would be around the 9th largest economy in the world if it were its own nation--American needs California to thrive. Rain!

    Since these category 4 storms are in the northeastern part of the Pacific, I am surprised that southeastern Alaska hasn't received any high winds and heavy rains. However both California and the Baja Peninsula are in desperate need of rain to end their long drought so bring on the rain from Crescent City all the way south to the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. Los Angeles really needs the rain with that huge and growing metro population.
