Hurricane Season 2019: Are You Prepared?
After Hurricane Michael ravaged a still-recovering Panhandle during the 2018 hurricane season, predictions of fewer storms in 2019 are welcome news. However, fewer storms does not necessarily mean the storms will be less dangerous. According to the Colorado State University Tropical Meteorology Project, 14 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes are expected during the 2019 season.

That prediction closely tracks with the 30-year average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 3 major hurricanes. The 2018 hurricane season saw 15 named storms, 8 hurricanes, and 2 major hurricanes in the Atlantic Basin.

Every hurricane season should be treated seriously, and taking simple precautions can help everyone stay safe in case of a natural disaster.
