Understanding the Nature of Hurricanes

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration defines a hurricane as, “… a type of storm called a tropical cyclone, which forms over tropical or subtropical waters. Think of it like a massive warm water tornado that brings the chance of flooding with it. A hurricane usually forms far out to sea and makes its way to land, picking up speed along the way. By the time it hits, it can have winds at speeds of over 100mph. Most local and national channels should have available weather alerts at this point.

When Is Hurricane Season?

The actual Atlantic hurricane season is from June 1 to November 30. Naturally, these can be peak vacation times, which means it’s important to keep an eye on the local weather before packing up and heading to the resort.
