By June 1, 2015May 21st, 2020Insurance


Its hurricane season again. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from today June 1st through November 30th every year. Some years are worse in terms of damage than others — 2005 remains the busiest season for the Atlantic region on record with 28 named storms — but every hurricane season brings the potential for significant weather events between the Caribbean and eastern Canada.

What’s the forecast for 2015? For what it is worth, many weather experts are predicting an unusually quiet year for hurricanes in 2015. Colorado State University has predicted no more than seven named storms this year, three of which will be hurricane-strength, but only one that’s a category 3 or higher.
