It seems that each year, hurricane season gets more and more media attention. It could be because the storms are consistently breaking records. Most recently, Hurricane Agatha made landfall in Southern Mexico as a Category 2 hurricane. Agatha was the strongest hurricane to ever make landfall during the month of May in the Eastern Pacific, where hurricane season began May 15. The Atlantic hurricane season began June 1 and goes until Nov. 30. The Atlantic season is also off to an active start with one named storm, Alex, already forming in the Atlantic. The system brought flooding rain to South Florida.
We’re not Miami or New Orleans, so we don’t have to worry, right? While we do not have the frequency of hurricane threats that southern states do, we absolutely need to watch every storm carefully.
