Posted by cat5shuttersllc on April 19, 2012

NEWS ALERT 2012The official start of the 2012 Atlantic hurricane season is nearly two months away, but it’s never too early to prepare customers for the wind damage, debris damage and flooding that might occur. Even with a below average season, four hurricanes can be expected according to pre-season predictions. Meanwhile, the country’s mid-section is experiencing severe spring storms and tornadoes, which can be mitigated through secure construction and storm shelters.

Below Average 2012 Hurricane Season: CSU

The Colorado State University (CSU) hurricane forecast team predicts 10 named storms and 4 hurricanes, of which 2 are expected to become major hurricanes (Cat. 3, 4 or 5), for a below average 2012 Atlantic hurricane season.
The forecast team places the probability of a landfalling hurricane along the U.S. coast at 42 percent. The long-term average probability is 52 percent.

The CSU team released numbers for its 29th Atlantic basin hurricane forecast on April 4.
“Despite this below-average forecast, we remain — since 1995 — in a favorable multi-decadal period for enhanced Atlantic Basin hurricane activity, which is expected to continue for the next 10 to 15 years or so,” said William Gray, founder of the CSU Tropical Meteorology Project.
