With hurricane season quickly approaching, it’s important to start thinking about what you can do to prepare for any potential storms that may come South Florida’s way. Colorado State University has released its predictions for named storms in 2023: here’s what you can expect and how you can prepare for the upcoming hurricane season.
After a 2022 “near normal” Atlantic hurricane season, Colorado State University (CSU) predicts that the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season will be “slightly below average” with 13 named storms and 2 major hurricanes making landfall.
While this may come as a relief for some, it’s important to note that even with a slightly below-average season, the potential for significant impacts from hurricanes should not be taken lightly.
Preparedness and proactive measures are still crucial for the safety of your home and family. CSU’s team projects six hurricanes for 2023, two of which could be major hurricanes, highlighting the need for continued vigilance and preparedness efforts.
One of the most important things you can do to prepare for the hurricane season is to create a plan. This should outline what you will do in the event of a storm, where you will go, and how you will stay safe. Make sure that you have enough supplies, including non-perishable food, drinking water, and medication, to last for several days.
It’s also important to prepare the exterior of your home for any potential storms. Make sure that any loose items in your yard, such as patio furniture or toys, are secured or moved inside. Consider adding hurricane shutters or purchasing plywood to board up your windows.
