As hurricane forecasts are beginning to form, the federal government predicts an unusually active 2017 hurricane season for the Atlantic Basin, with five to nine hurricanes expected to form. Overall, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration forecasts 11 to 17 named tropical storms will develop in the region which includes the Atlantic, the Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico. The season official begins June 1st and runs through November 30th.
It is worth the investment to install hurricane impact windows on your home as well as any other wind resistant installments that can save your home from extensive damage and in turn an extensive hit to your back account. These storms can reach wind speeds easily over 100 mph and as seen in the past, do some real damage to homes. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Hurricane Andrew which tore into South Florida on August 24th , 1992. We here at Great Florida homes encourage you to make the investment in making your home not only a safer place but also a more valuable property for future tenants, especially in such a hurricane prone area that we live in. Stay safe!
