“It only takes one storm hitting an area to cause a disaster, regardless of the overall activity for the season. Therefore, residents, businesses, and government agencies of coastal and near-coastal regions are urged to prepare every hurricane season regardless of this, or any other, seasonal outlook.”  –  National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) 

Peak hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin has begun.  Hurricane season lasts through the end of November, with its peak running from mid-August to mid-October.  NOAA has doubled down on its initial seasonal forecast issued in May by announcing that the season will continue to be above-average.  In fact, you are probably well-aware that Hurricane Ida pummeled the Gulf Coast, leaving major destruction in Louisiana.  Search and rescue efforts have begun.  

If you’re on the Gulf Coast or the Atlantic Ocean, maintain your vigilance and storm preparation plans as August through October are our peak months for tropical cyclone development.  Nearly 90% of hurricanes occur after August 1st, and the statistics also say that nearly 95% of our major hurricanes occur after August 1st.  

August is historically the month the tropical Atlantic begins kicking into high gear.  Sea surface temperatures continue to climb across the Atlantic, and wind shear begins to decrease, which results in August seeing the biggest increase in tropical activity of the entire hurricane season.
