If last year’s docile hurricane season lulled us into complacency, this year’s hurricane forecast should keep boaters on their toes.
BoatUS sent notice based on this year’s predictions:
Accuweather, a nationwide weather service, recently reported it expects 2010 to be an “extreme season” with as many as 18 named storms, a 100% increase over 2009.
You never know when one’s going to come your way, and if you live on the Eastern seaboard you should have a plan in place for your boat (and your family and house, of course) beforehand. To that end, BoatUS has a free hurricane resource center online, at: http://www.BoatUS.com/Hurricanes.
