We recently updated the Hurricane Season Travel Tools to help hurricane travelers stay out of harmâ€™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 youâ€™re traveling this hurricane season (June 1st through November 30th), even if youâ€™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.
