If you live in South Florida or on the east coast, you are well aware that storms or hurricanes are inevitable. At Max Guard, we make safety a priority for our clients and we believe that staying informed helps us best prepare for what lies ahead. We’ve gathered the forecast for this hurricane season to help you and your family know what to expect.

The Early Forecast for Hurricane Season 2019

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration –– or NOAA, predicts approximately 9 to 15 named storms. Of those storms, 4 to 8 are likely to become hurricanes, which also include 2 to 4 major hurricanes.
According to the NOAA, here is some useful terminology to know:

  • Eye of the storm: The circular area of comparatively light winds that encompasses the center of a cyclone.
  • Storm Surge: An abnormal rise in sea level accompanying a hurricane or other intense storm.
  • Tropical Depression: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 38 mph or less.
  • Tropical Storm: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 39 to 73 mph.
  • Hurricane: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 74 mph or higher.
  • Major Hurricane: A tropical cyclone with maximum sustained winds of 111 mph or higher, corresponding to a Category 3, 4 or 5.

Hurricane season begins June 1st and ends Nov. 30th, however hurricane season peaks between August and Oct.

The NOAA believes that there is a 40% chance that this year will be a normal season like last year, but that’s not exactly good news. Last year, Hurricanes Florence and Michael made landfall in the U.S. causing nearly $50 billion in damages. It is also predicted that there is a 30% chance of either stronger and weaker seasons.

Despite the forecasts, storms can be unpredictable. Even if your home isn’t in the storm path, it can still be at risk. At Max Guard, we’ve helped South Floridians protect their homes and families for over 30 years. Call us at (561) 349-6136 or through our contact us page online.
