We recently updated the Hurricane Season Travel Tools to help hurricane travelers stay out of harm’s way because the current consensus of hurricane experts is that the 2011 hurricane seasons looks to be more dangerous than usual.
Specifically, all indicators suggest that the Atlantic will see:
- Between 13 and 17 named storms
- Between 7 and 9 hurricanes
- Between 4 and 5 major hurricanes
According to our research, the average number of storms each hurricane season is:
- Between 9 and 10 named tropical storms
- Between 5 and 6 named hurricanes
- Between 2 and 3 major (category 3-5) hurricanes
So, as you can see, this hurricane season is predicted to be a little rougher than usual.
If you’re traveling this hurricane season (June 1st through November 30th), even if you’re not traveling in the typical hurricane zone, be sure to review the Hurricane Travel Resource Center for tips and information about safe travel and how travel insurance can help.
