As the summer of 2013 is progressing, so is the Atlantic hurricane season. We have already had three named storms, fortunately none were major.

However, we are now starting to move deeper into the hurricane season and activity in the tropical Atlantic, Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico is likely to significantly ramp up.

After our region was slammed by Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011 and Sandy in October 2012, everyone must be more prepared than ever to ride out future hurricanes. If the predictions by weather forecasters are accurate, we can expect more violent and destructive storms to strike the east coast. Will this happen this year? Only time will tell. Hopefully it will not occur. Hurricanes are the most awesome display of nature on earth. Their destructive power is truly awesome.
