Hurricane Safety and Preparedness

The hurricane season officially starts on June 1st and ends on November 30th. The 2020 North Atlantic hurricane season is off to a historically fast start with already three named storms by early June. This year will mark the sixth consecutive year that a named storm has preceded the official start of hurricane season. The 30-year average number of named storms is 13. This year experts predict 17 named storms.

According to The Weather Channel, they have seen several unusual events so far this season:

  1. Three named storms have already formed in the 2020 Atlantic hurricane season (none of these became a hurricane).

  2. Cristobal was the earliest “C” storm (or third named storm) on record and its remnants tracked to Wisconsin.

  3. Bertha made landfall one hour after it formed.

  4. All three storms brought impact to the U.S.
