Commence your preparations for this hurricane season – NEMO

  • by

As the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane season approaches, the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) is encouraging the public to commence preparations.

Forecasters are predicting a more active than normal Hurricane season.

Dan Kottlowksi, AccuWeather’s top hurricane expert, predicted an increase in the normal number of tropical storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes, which are classified as a category 3 or higher.

“It’s going to be an above-normal season,” Kottlowski said. “On a normal year, we have around 12 storms, six hurricanes and roughly three major hurricanes.”

The season runs June 1 through November 30, although storms have been known to occur outside the official start and end dates.

“NEMO encourages all to commence your preparations for this hurricane season,” the organization advised via Facebook.
