Hurricane season lasts from the beginning of June until the end of November. However, a congresswoman in Florida believes the season may need to be extended. According to a recent Insurance Journal post, the congresswoman contacted the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration with a request that hurricane season be moved up to the middle of May. Her request is backed up by the fact that a named storm has emerged before the start of hurricane season for more than five years now. For example, this year Cristobal was one of three the storms that popped up in May.
While many tropical storms have formed in the Atlantic in the past few years prior to June 1, most of them were deemed “marginal” and with the enhancements in satellite tracking, it’s likely weak storms are receiving names by the National Hurricane Center. Only one named hurricane has emerged before June and that was the 1970 Hurricane Alma.
