Hurricane season 2023 is bearing down on Florida. It’s now less than 100 days from the official June 1 start of the Atlantic hurricane season. The National Hurricane Center chose this six-month period because it accounts for 97% of all Atlantic tropical storms and hurricanes, according to NOAA’s Hurricane Research Division. But remember, Mother Nature decides when hurricane season starts as there have been powerful storms prior to the official start date.
Global warming is increasing the intensity and frequency of storms, and it’s capable of shifting wind patterns, which will further increase hurricane risk, steering hurricanes closer to the Gulf Coast and East Coast. Climate change is creating stronger hurricanes that contain more moisture and rapidly intensify. It only takes one storm for any region to have a record-breaking hurricane season.
For example, Hurricane Ian left a path of destruction, from Naples and Fort Myers to Orlando and Daytona, leaving tens of thousands of residents with homes that are uninhabitable. According to a NOAA report, the storm ranked as the costliest disaster in the U.S. for 2022 and racked up a total cost of $112.9 billion in damages. Many insureds who were affected called Corless Law Group to receive adequate compensation.
