Peak of hurricane season

8/15/2016 (Permalink)

2016 Hurricane season activity, the peak being around September 10.

NOAA is expecting the remainder of the season to contain seven to 12 named storms, of which three to six are expected to become hurricanes. Two to four of those hurricanes are expected to be major hurricanes, which means Category 3 or above, containing wind speeds greater than 111 mph.

If one of those major hurricanes happens to hit the United States, it would be the first to do so since Hurricane Wilma in 2005, and would end the longest period without a major hurricane hitting the country since records began in 1851.

Keep your eyes on the storms and plan ahead!  We are in the middle of hurricane season and the storms can have lasting effects on your home or business. When disaster strikes call on SERVPRO of South Tampa professionals to handle the job. (813)839-6633
