Before the 2022 Hurricane Season started, the NOAA predicted an above-average season to rival the extremely active 2021 season. The Gulf Coast and other areas braced themselves for an influx of tropical weather, and then...
Nothing happened. There have only been 3 named storms since the beginning of the season in June.
Many areas in the Gulf were affected by drought conditions through the spring and summer months, and the Hurricane Outlook was officially downgraded at the beginning of August.
So, is everything all clear? Not exactly.
Now that it's mid-August, there are some disturbances and tropical waves showing up on the radar. These could eventually turn into named storms that affect the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas. We're heading into the peak of Hurricane Season, and anything could happen.
If it does?
We'll be there. SERVPRO of Oxford/Batesville/Clarksdale has assisted our national Storm Teams in areas affected by strong hurricanes. We're ready to do it again.
We're always here to help.
