The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30, often bringing heightened storm activity, particularly from August to October, including heavy rain, strong winds, and flooding.

Review your insurance coverage and take steps to protect loved ones and property. Typical homeowners and renters insurance policies do not cover flood damage—a separate flood insurance policy is necessary and takes 30 days to become effective after purchase.

Meteorologists project an above-normal hurricane season, with NOAA predicting 17-25 named storms and an 85% chance of higher activity.
