Modeler Risk Management Solutions (RMS) said the end of the 2010 Atlantic hurricane season is not the time to relax. Conditions “are still ripe for further activity.” Neena Saith, senior catastrophe response manager for RMS, said wind shear, which can break up a hurricane, is low and sea surface temperatures in the Caribbean Sea remain warm. Wind shear conditions “are expected to reduce over the next few days across the Caribbean,” which will “play a key role in hurricane activity over the coming weeks.”
