You know hurricanes are powerful, but there's much more to the story. See how hurricanes form, when they are most active, exciting facts about hurricanes and how a hurricane's projected path might affect you.
Forecasters at NOAA anticipate an above-average hurricane season with 18 named storms, with 9 of these becoming hurricanes, including 4 major hurricanes reaching category 3, 4, or 5. With improvements and advancements to NOAA’s modeling, they can deliver this forecast with a 70% confidence rating.1
Hurricane risk extends beyond the storm itself. Lower-lying areas can be affected by storm surge and flooding, and rain and wind damage can extend well inland. In 2017, for example, Hurricane Irma brought 140mph gusts and storm surge ten feet above ground level to parts of Florida, and virtually all of the state felt its effects. By the time it was over, Irma had done more than $50 billion in damage.3, 4
