South Florida hasn’t reached dry land just yet.
As our Miami hurricane damage lawyers continue to report, October and November have witnessed half of the South Florida hurricane activity during the past century. Wilma, the last major hurricane to strike the region, hit during the last week of October five years ago.
The Treasure Coast Palm reports three low pressure systems in the Atlantic have a better than even chance of becoming tropical cyclones as South Florida enters the month of November.
The National Hurricane Center reports the storms form a triangle between the southern tip of Florida and the coast of Africa. The storms were given a 20-60 percent chance of reaching tropical cyclone strength on the eve of Halloween weekend.
Consequently, forecasters are calling for 6- to 8-foot seas with even higher seas in the Gulf Stream.
So far, the Atlantic Hurricane Season has brought:
June: Hurricane Alex, first category 2 hurricane in June since 1966.
July: Tropical Depression #2 and Tropical Storm Bonnie.
August: Tropical Storm Colin, Tropical Depression #5, Major Hurricane Danielle, Major Hurricane Earl, and Tropical Storm Fiona.
September: Tropical Storm Gaston, Tropical Storm Hermine, Major Hurricane Igor, Major Hurricane Julia, Major Hurricane Karl, Hurricane Lisa, Tropical Storm Matthew and Tropical Storm Nicole.
