Are You Prepared For Hurricane Season?

Hurricane Season Is From June 1st – August 30th. According to the Colorado State University Tropical Meteorology Project, it’s highly possible that 2019 will see fewer storms, however, this does not imply that the intensity of the storms will be any less destructive. Colorado State University is predicting 13 storms out of which five will become hurricanes, and two are likely to develop into major hurricanes. The CSU study concluded that, ”The 2019 forecast is near the 30-year average of 12 named storms, six hurricanes and three major hurricanes”. So if you live in the areas more susceptible to hurricanes like Clearwater Beach, Clearwater, New Port Richey, Anna Maria Island and Bradenton Beach now would be a good time to start assessing your current windows and how impact windows can help save you time, money, and most importantly your home.

What defines a hurricane? NASA defines hurricanes as “large, swirling storms that produce winds of 74 mph or higher”. 

How much can hurricane damage cost?

 According to NOAA “The cumulative cost of the 16 separate billion-dollar weather events in the U.S. in 2017 was $306.2 billion, breaking the previous cost record of $214.8 billion (2005)”. Leaving thousands of people without homes altogether. For this reason, it’s imperative to properly equip your home with quality storm windows and doors to mitigate the damage.
