NOAA Predicts "Above Average" Hurricane Season
With a fairly quiet 2021 Hurrican Season, experts with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) predict an “above-average” 2022 Atlantic hurricane season. NOAA predicts 14 to 21 named storms, including three to six major hurricanes.
NOAA says there is a 65% chance of an above-normal season, a 25% chance of a near-normal season, and a 10% chance of a below-normal season.
SERVPRO of Brunswick remains prepared for all forecasts for severe weather in Coastal Georgia. The last major Hurricane that hit the Georgia coast was, Hurricane Michael. A "Major Hurricane" is classified of anything from a CAT 3- CAT 5 Hurricane. Ranging in wind speeds over 110MPH! With Hurricane Michael in 2018, the rainfall fortunately was only 6.8 inches due to how fast the storm moved through the area. 6.8 inches of rain still caused tremendous damage to local homes and businesses.
