Active Storm Season Anticipated

Having looked at meteorological data, experts agree that 2010’s hurricane season will be a violent one, possibly rivaling the devastating 2005 season, infamous for Hurricane Katrina and 27 other named storms. In its latest tropical storm update, private weather forecaster WSI called for 19 named storms, down from 20 in its June forecast, but maintained its outlook for 11 hurricanes and 5 intense hurricanes of category 3 or higher.

“Record warm tropical Atlantic Ocean temperatures and an enabling wind shear environment should result in a very active tropical season this year,” said Dr. Todd Crawford, WSI’s chief meteorologist. A slow start to the hurricane season led to the downward revision in named storms. A pocket of dry air in the Atlantic is likely to limit development in the near term, WSI said, while August to October is expected to be a very active period.

With the forecasts as they are, attention to the possibility of wind and storm damage is a must for the upcoming hurricane season on the South Shore. Look to A. G. Gordon Insurance & Risk Management to provide you with the peace of mind you deserve.
