Hurricane season

Hurricane season still very much a danger

Hurricane Florence is the first major hurricane of the 2018 and most likely it will not be last in a season that ends Nov. 30.
Lisa Vidrine, St. Landry Parish director of the Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, said, “We are at the peak of the season. We go until Nov. 30 so this is the most intense time.”
September is prime time for hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.

The peak of the storm season

September 10 is generally recognized as the day when the hurricane season reaches its peak, and the likelihood of storms begins to fade, albeit slowly. Historically, the two weeks before and the two weeks after this day are the most likely time for a storm to develop.
That’s a statistic. It doesn’t mean we are out of the woods; we’ve had hurricanes as early as April and as late as December. But an oddsmaker betting on when storms are most likely to happen would put his money on September, and especially the middle weeks of the month.
