Why Were There So Many Hurricanes in 2017?

Nobody will dispute that 2017 has been a crazy year for hurricanes! No doubt you have heard all kinds of explanations for WHY, with climate change and global warming being at the top of list for the most reasonable scientific explanation. Well I heard an explanation the other day and I'm not sure if other people offered this as a reason, but it was the first I had ever heard it. I don't have enough understanding of the weather to say that the statement makes sense or doesn't make sense. My husband said: “The reason 2017 was such a crazy year for hurricanes is because there was an eclipse.” I never even associated the eclipse with the hurricanes. Eclipse = Crazy Hurricane Season. You decide.
I've heard people ask why don't Hurricanes happen in the Pacific ocean? The answer is that they do they are just not called that. Actually they can be far...

@cmoneyspinner The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June to November 30. - however the most active months are August and September. A few dangerous October hurricanes in previous years include, Sandy, Matthew and Nicole. Some of the late November hurricanes were - Greta, kate, Michelle and Paloma.

I have no idea but take a look at this link
Two massive and rare events occurring in the same week. That has certainly raised some eyebrows, and it's only natural to question wether or not there is some correlation between the two, or even if there are some strange cosmic forces at work in the unive

I don't know why. But of course it seems that the global warming makes the world weather much more weird. In fact this year we also have more typhoons. Luckily it didn't give a very bad effect on my city. However, it caused the deads in Macau.

Oh my! You just made me realize that I had not heard any news about disastrous weather in other parts of the world. I did hear India was experiencing a monsoon. But that's about it. Typhoons seem even scarier than hurricanes.
Year is not over. Let's hope this year calms itself down. Seems the year is trying to end with a bang. Mankind has destroyed this planet, it's only fair that the planet destroys us back. Not a humane way to look at it, but think of the earth'so feelings. Lol. Sounds stupid, but put your 'eclipse' explanation in, and it doesn't sound crazy after all.

OK! Guess we know which camp you're in. I can only say that I have found a few who disagree and think these hurricanes are perfectly normal and have nothing to do with climate change. https://globalvoices.org/2017/09/09/irma-a-meditation-on-hurricanes-and-the-bahamas/

True. The damage done by hurricanes is no joke. But I've been hearing that "Nibiru" reason for about 50 years. Don't think it was called Niburi when I was growing up. But similar statements were made. I think I must not understand what the word "near" means. Half a century has passed me by already. Added an information link in case somebody else was reading the discussion and want to know more.
