2014 Hurricane Season: Is it Over?By Stacy Mellete
According to the Miami Herald, forecasters predict that the hurricane season will be ending soon. Even though the Sunshine State has not experienced any hurricanes for the past eight hurricane seasons, experts still warn homeowners across Florida to remain on alert because our location is within a cycle of high hurricane activity.
This piece of weather news has been greatly helpful because the end of the hurricane season means that Floridians can now breathe a sigh of relief.
We have been threatened by massive hurricanes like Katrina in 2005 and Sandy in 2012. And in 2008, Hurricane Fay took five lives and resulted in about $560 million in property damage. In 2012, Hurricane Debby caused damage that cost $250 million while Hurricane Isaac flooded Palm Beach County and resulted in $71 million worth of damage. Despite being in a high hurricane activity cycle, Florida has not experienced a direct hit since 2005.
Time and again, many homeowners in the Sunshine State have proven their extraordinary resilience and have learned that indeed, prevention is the key to the reduction of a home’s vulnerability to storm-related water damage.
