2016 Predicted to be Most Active Hurricane Season
Florida Enters Peak Hurricane Season
The last four years have been fairly mild regarding hurricanes and tropical storms but that is expected to change. Two weeks ago NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) predicted a 70% chance of 12-17 named storms, making 2016 the most active hurricane season since 2012.
Although Floridians can breathe a sigh of relief now that tropical invest 99L has been deemed “too weak to classify” and is no longer being monitor by the National Hurricane Center unless “regeneration occurs”, Floridians still need to keep their eyes peeled and their homes prepared. Not far in the Atlantic Tropical Storm Gaston lingers and as we enter the peak of hurricane season, mid-august through late October, hurricane season is far from over.
