When Storms Strike SERVPRO's Teams Are Ready
Spring and summer for many Oxford, Batesville, and Clarksdale residents means trips to the beach. It’s a great break to get away and enjoy a little sun and sand when kids are out of school and parents need a vacation. One thing that can alter plans while at the beach is rain storms, tropical storms and even hurricanes.
The official Atlantic hurricane season lasts from June 1 through November 30. The majority of the storms hit during what is called “peak season”, which is between the months of August and October. The Climate Prediction Center classifies hurricane seasons each year based on how active they believe it will be. This year they are predicting what they refer to as an above-normal hurricane season in the Atlantic. Above normal means that they predict between 12 and 28 tropical storms and between 7 to 17 hurricanes during the 2017 hurricane season.
Things to keep in mind when at the beach during bad weather:
- Listen to lifeguards and check caution flags
- Check weather stations and websites
- Use rainy days for shopping and other inside activities
