A recent Poll on USAA’s twitter feed revealed 47% of responders identified hurricane season correctly. When do you think the traditional hurricane season is?

 

If you answered June through November, you are right. Hurricanes typically strike coastal towns, but the storms can cause much more widespread damage. And while a storm must reach winds of at least 74 mph to be classified as a hurricane, tropical storms, which reach 39 mph, can still cause extensive damage so it is important to be prepared.

 

 

Here is the list of names the National Hurricane Center released for the 2019 hurricane season:

Let’s hope we don’t make it through the full list of names this hurricane season. Last year two hurricane names were retired, Florence and Michael. A name is retired when a storm is particularly devastating.

Now is the time to start preparing if you live in a hurricane prone area. Check out the USAA monthly maintenance guide for tips such as: Getting Your Trees Storm-Ready.
