The 2021 hurricane season began a few weeks ago on June 1st and will last until November 30th with likelihood that September will be the most active month. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center, Atlantic hurricane activity is expected to be higher than normal, though likely not quite as high as the historic storms witnessed in 2020. The prediction this year is for 13-20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), 6-10 of which may become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3-5 major hurricanes (category 3/4/5 with winds of 111 mph or higher).
However, no matter how many storms come through the region in a season, all it takes is one storm to hit your community for your property to experience heavy damage. Companies that think ahead and prepare with a disaster plan (such as the R3 Emergency Response Plan) are able to recover from storms more easily and with less impact, including getting back to business faster.
