2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season Activity Forecast

The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season forecast released Thursday from Colorado State University calls for the number of named storms and hurricanes to be slightly below historical averages.

A total of 11 named storms, 4 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes are expected this season, according to the forecast prepared by the CSU Tropical Meteorology Project, headed by Dr. Phil Klotzbach.

Q: What Does This Mean For Central Florida?

There is no strong correlation between the number of storms or hurricanes and U.S. landfalls in any given season. One or more of the 12 named storms forecast to develop this season could hit the U.S., or none at all. Therefore, residents of the coastal United States should prepare each year no matter the forecast.

Being prepared includes knowing a contractor who provides an immediate response, and works directly with your insurance company to repair your property quickly with no hassle to you, so that you can reclaim your home quickly.
