The finish line to hurricane season is in sight. After starting slow, we had an active couple of months with 17 named storms forming this season. That includes six hurricanes and eleven tropical storms making it an above-average season prior to even reaching the final month. Of course, it’s not about how many storms we have but how they impact us and aside from Dorian’s destruction in the Bahamas, we've been fortunate. But we’re not completely out of the woods.
Quick trivia question, of the six months of hurricane season, which is the most inactive? If you answered November, you're incorrect. It's actually June. November is the 2nd least active month of the hurricane season. The breakdown of months based on activity puts September first followed by August, October, July, and the two least active, November and June.
What does November bring? Since 1851, November has brought 92 tropical storms and 60 hurricanes. In other words, we average a tropical storm about every other year and a hurricane about every three years. So, the wind is at our back as we head down the home stretch.
