We are in the middle of the hurricane season now. It was less than 3 weeks ago that Hurricane Dorian hit the Bahamas and passed over the eastern seaboard of the U.S. Over the past few years, Labor Day has come to symbolize the peak of hurricane season and it’s during September and October that we see some of the most intense hurricanes. Planning for a hurricane or tropical storm should obviously include a preparedness checklist and an emergency disaster plan, but it should also include a guide for what to do and who to call after the damage is done and you’re left to clean it all up.
Why is September peak hurricane season?
Although hurricanes can make landfall anytime between July and November, September is the most common month for hurricanes in the United States, and it’s also the month when hurricanes have done the most damage. But why? The answer has to do with both wind and water. Hurricanes happen when the oceans have been warmed during the summer months. An occurrence is known as wind shear, usually decreases from June onwards, causing weather systems to form into tropical cyclones. When you put the rising ocean temperatures and low wind shear together, you get a hurricane.
