Odds Point To Our Record Breaking Lucky Streak to End
As we say goodbye to May and the calendar switches over to June it marks the beginning of the 2013 Hurricane Season. We want to remind our neighbors to always be prepared as the numbers are starting to work against us. A major hurricane is one with winds of more than 111 miles per hour and the last time one crossed into our country was way back in 2005. This is the longest stretch since records have been kept and add in the fact that the Atlantic waters have warmed considerably over the past few months and you see why experts are predicting a 72% chance that a major hurricane will make landfall in the US this year.
A 72% chance is big and the chances are very good for mother nature to make a big impact somewhere in the United States and no matter where that may be it is not going to be a welcomed act. The key is preparation and the University of Florida has an awesome webpage where you can obtain some valuable information.
