NASA’s Terra satellite saw Hurricanes Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena lined up across the Central and Eastern Pacific Ocean on August 29 at 22:25 UTC (6:25 p.m. EDT).

NASA’s Terra satellite just released this August 29 image of Hurricanes Kilo, Ignacio, and Jimena, all Category Four Hurricanes. According to the Weather Channel:

This is the first recorded occurrence of three Category 4 hurricanes in the central and eastern Pacific basins at the same time. In addition, it’s also the first time with three major hurricanes (Category 3 or stronger) in those basins simultaneously, according to hurricane specialist Eric Blake of the National Hurricane Center.

The Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) in Honolulu Hawaii is issuing advisories on all of the hurricanes. On Sunday, August 30, from west to east, Hurricane Kilo was located 1,210 miles west-southwest of Honolulu, Hawaii, Hurricane Ignacio was located 515 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii, and Hurricane Jimena was located 1,815 miles east-southeast of Hilo, Hawaii.

 

Praying that our brothers and sisters in the paths of these hurricanes will be spared. :(

Key points from the article:

 

This hurricane season is breaking records, he added, with 15 tropical cyclones of category four or five appearing so far in 2015, all of them in the Pacific. The previous record, Klotzbach said, was nine.​

 

"The best way to think about it, is that when global warming and natural variability [like El Nino] are going in the same direction — and that's what's happening in the Pacific — that's when you have very active seasons, and that's when you're apt to break records, and see some things that you've never seen before, like three category-four hurricanes in the same basin," -Trenberth​

 

Gabriel Vecchi, a climate scientist and oceanographer at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory in Princeton, New Jersey-There is very warm "blob" of water, a huge swath of the Pacific that is warmer than usual, above the equator, extending from Mexico out through Hawaii. He thinks it is that stretch of warm water — not caused by El Nino — that is driving the hurricane activity. But he is unsure of the reasons behind the warm patch​.

 

Meanwhile, something rare also happened in the Atlantic, where a hurricane traveled through Cape Verde, just off the coast of Africa. That hurricane, called Fred, was probably the "eastern-most hurricane on record," - Richard Pasch, of the National Hurricane Center in Miami
