AAA: More Floridians prepping earlier for hurricane season

  • A hurricane-driven storm surge could destroy over 460,000

They also predict a 35 per cent chance of an above-normal season, a 40 per cent chance of a near-normal season, and a 25 per cent chance of a below-normal season for the upcoming hurricane season, which extends from June 1 to November 30.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration last week released an outlook for what it considers to be a slightly above-average hurricane season, which means 10 to 16 named storms, of which five to nine are expected to reach hurricane status.

They are now calling for a closer to near average season, with 14 named storms, that does include Alberto, 6 hurricanes and 2 of them being a major hurricane with winds greater than 110 miles per hour. And it said unusually cool temperatures in the Atlantic Ocean would deprive hurricanes of the warm water that fuels them.

The expectation among state economic observers is that consumers might be more eager this year than in past seasons to stock supplies early, after active storm seasons that yielded destructive Hurricane Matthew in October 2016 and Hurricane Irma in September 2017.

The 2017 season was among the busiest on record, with powerful hurricanes destroying parts of Texas, Puerto Rico and Florida.

Florida's governor and Legislature promised a dizzying array of fixes following the devastation of last year's hurricanes.

According to the report, the Atlantic Coast has more than 3.9 million homes at risk of hurricane storm surge, with an RCV of more than $1 trillion. NOAA believes that wind shear, coupled with the cooler Atlantic, will slow development.

Pres. Trump to hold a sports field day at the White House
Grisham said the first lady would like to be "out and about promoting her initiatives" but " her health comes first". A few days later, reports stated that the first lady had returned to the White House following the operation.

Those tools can, according to National Hurricane Center statistics, determine a storm's track more accurately than ever before; they can determine exactly what towns sit in the path of impending severe weather; and they can tell residents on the coast how high the storm surge will be.

"We have decreased our forecast and now believe that 2018 will have approximately average activity", the team said. First, having a storm develop during May is not a precursor to an active season. Because you never know when one of these things could happen with something like this.

And like every year, no matter the seasonal forecast, forecasters recommend residents have their hurricane plan in place before the season begins.

In 2017, three major hurricanes - out of the 17 named storms - touched USA soil causing devestation.

Mayfield said they are boosting their preparedness for staffing of first responders, making sure they and their families are safe and can get where they need to if a disaster occurs.
