National Hurricane Preparedness Week runs from May 3 - 9. As Floridians, we all know that preparing for hurricane season ahead of time is critical, perhaps more now than ever before.
After an active Atlantic hurricane season in 2019, experts are predicting the 2020 season to result in above normal activity with 14-18 named storms, 9 hurricanes and 4 major hurricanes. This is higher than the average hurricane season, which has 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes. The Tropical Meteorology Project team at Colorado State University (CSU) predicts a 68% chance of a hurricane landfall in Florida this hurricane season. This is a 17% increase from the average of 51% chance of landfall for the Sunshine State. But as the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) warns, "It only takes one storm to change your life and community."
