Hurricane season might be busier than originally anticipated
The 2017 hurricane season might be busier than forecasters orginally thought, according to a July 5 article in the USA Today.
Clay Electric is prepared for hurricane season
The 2017 hurricane season begins June 1. Although a lower level of activity has been predicted this year, remember that it only takes one powerful storm to cause massive destruction and loss of life. While August and September are typically the busiest months for hurricane formation, it makes sense to check supplies and review storm preparation plans now.
Slightly below-average activity predicted for 2017 hurricane season
A forecast team from Colorado State University has predicted a slightly below-average level of activity in the Atlantic basin this hurricane season. Phil Klotzbach and Michael Bell of the CSU Tropical Meteorology Project say there will be an average of 11 named storms, with four of those storms developing into hurricanes in the Atlantic this season, which runs from June 1 through November 30.
