We are approaching the peak risk time of developing a hurricane during the season.
Now is the time to check your insurance policies to ensure you have proper wind and flood coverage.
Temperatures in the Gulf are record high this year.
Sea surface temperatures so far this hurricane season have busted records in the Gulf of Mexico, running just under 2 degrees Fahrenheit above average, and that could mean more fuel for tropical storms and hurricanes if the season becomes more active.Temperatures at the Gulf of Mexico's surface from June 1 through July 17 were at their warmest for the time period since records began in 1982, according to Michael Lowry, hurricane specialist for The Weather Channel.
Bottom line: The U.S. is due for another hurricane strike sooner rather than later, but it's impossible to know if that will occur this season. Keep in mind, however, that even a weak tropical storm hitting the U.S. can cause major impacts, particularly if it moves slowly, resulting in flooding rainfall.
