Safety: Hurricane Season 2022

Aug 31, 2022 | 0 comments

Hurricane season officially began on June 1 and will officially end on November 30, 2022.  However, four storms typically develop in any given September when the Atlantic Ocean water temperature is at its warmest.  This is more than any other month of the season.  After September, Atlantic tropical activity tends to decrease steadily throughout October and November as the water cools.

The National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) outlook calls for 14 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or greater), of which 6-10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or greater).

Make sure you have a plan of action and an emergency kit ready should you need to evacuate from coastal areas along the eastern seaboard.  The South Carolina Emergency Management Division has a handy resource guide and online tools available to help visitors and residents plan for a safe hurricane season.

And, it is important to prepare your RV for a hurricane if it is your full time living space.  Here is a handy link from State Farm Insurance that provides tips for preparing your RV for bad weather.

If you live on the coast and store your trailer, camper van, RV or boat in a RV/Marine storage facility, make sure you know the process for removing your unit prior to or during an evacuation.   Speak with your storage unit management team or contact your county emergency preparedness office.
