The VCGFL Hurricane Preparedness webinar includes updated information per the National Hurricane Center and provides a live Q&A platform. Topics include creating a hurricane preparedness checklist, developing a disaster plan, determining your evacuation zone, reviewing insurance policies and flood insurance, and the importance of property readiness and conducting routine property inspections.
“Hurricane preparedness is key for everyone in Florida. With COVID-19 and social distancing, it’s even more imperative to update disaster preparedness plans, including supply kits, evacuation routes, shelters and more. And of course, seeing our latest supply shortages, be sure you have everything you need to strengthen your property,” says Stephen Shanton, CEO and president, Venture Construction Group of Florida.
Hurricane season in the Atlantic Basin officially runs June 1 through Nov. 30. September is the most common month for hurricanes making landfall in the U.S., followed by August and October, according to an analysis of 1851 to 2015 data by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
According to the NOAA Climate Prediction Center, 2020 Atlantic hurricane season activity is projected to be above normal. A normal Atlantic hurricane season produces 12 named storms, of which 6 become hurricanes, including 3 major hurricanes. This year, NOAA estimates higher than normal activity, including 13-19 named storms (winds of 39 mph or greater). Of those storms, 6-10 are forecast to become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or greater), and 3-6 are predicted to strengthen into major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher).
“NOAA’s analysis of current and seasonal atmospheric conditions reveals a recipe for an active Atlantic hurricane season this year,” said Neil Jacobs, Ph.D., acting NOAA administrator. “Our skilled forecasters, coupled with upgrades to our computer models and observing technologies, will provide accurate and timely forecasts to protect life and property.”
