June 2015

Hurricane Season 2015 is here.

Although the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is predicting a milder than normal hurricane season, it is not the time to let our guard down. 

It has been nearly a decade since a hurricane has impacted Florida, a state which has been hit by seven of the 10 most costly and damaging hurricanes in U.S. history. But despite the recent lull, another devastating storm could impact the Sunshine State in the near future. This is by far the longest that the state has gone without being hit by a hurricane dating back to the 1850's.

NOAA's 2015 Hurricane Season Prediction
 
NOAA's Climate Prediction Center says the 2015 Atlantic hurricane season will likely be below-normal, but that's no reason to believe coastal areas will have it easy.

For the hurricane season, which officially runs from June 1 - November 30, NOAA is predicting a 70 percent likelihood of 6 to 11 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 3 to 6 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including zero to 2 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). While a below-normal season is likely (70 percent), there is also a 20 percent chance of a near-normal season, and a 10 percent chance of an above-normal season. 

"A below-normal season doesn't mean we're off the hook. As we've seen before, below-normal seasons can still produce catastrophic impacts to communities," said NOAA Administrator Kathryn Sullivan, Ph.D., referring to the 1992 season in which only seven named storms formed, yet the first was Andrew - a Category 5 Major Hurricane that devastated South Florida.
