“It only takes one storm to significantly disrupt your life,” stated FEMA Deputy Administrator Joseph Nimmich. Preparing for the worst can keep you, your family, and first responders out of harm’s way.”
The 2020 hurricane season will arrive at an unique moment in world history. While the global COVID-19 pandemic has kept many Americans at home, sheltering in place while under orders of social distancing, an above-average hurricane season has been predicted by Colorado State University (CSU) hurricane researchers and AccuWeather. The above-average seasonal hurricane forecast from CSU is due to the likely lack of El Niño this summer and fall.
The CSU Tropical Meteorology project team predicts 16 named storms during the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs between June 1 and November 30. The research models indicate as many as eight storms will become hurricanes and our will reach major hurricane strength (Saffir/Simpson category three or higher). This outlook anticipates major power outage events and points to early homeowner preparedness as a key aspect for surviving the storms with resilience.
“While seasonal forecasts may vary from year to year – some high, some low – it only takes one storm to significantly disrupt your life,” stated FEMA Deputy Administrator Joseph Nimmich. Preparing for the worst can keep you, your family, and first responders out of harm’s way.”
