Author: OTC Insurance Brokers Posted on: 18.04.2012

OTC Insurance, a Nova Scotia insurance broker providing home, auto and commercial insurance, talks about recent predictions for the upcoming 2012 Atlantic hurricane season.

Picking up on our last post where we talked about preparing for severe weather occurrences, the timing couldn’t be better for some predictions that recently came out. The Tropical Metorological Project out of Colorado State University came out with its 2012 predictions for the Atlantic hurricane season. Their predictions might surprise you.

The researchers are predicting that there will be less hurricane activity than compared to the climatology for the years between 1981 and 2010.

“The tropical Atlantic has anamalously cooled over the past several months, and it appears that the chances of an El Niño event this summer and fall are relatively high,” says the introduction to the 42-page report. “We anticipate a below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the United States coastline and in the Caribbean.”

According to a CBC news article, hurricane season is considered to run from June 1 until the end of November.

Whether this year turns out to have a below or above-average number of hurricanes, people should ensure they take the necessary steps to prepare for severe weather occurences, such as hurricanes. Environment Canada offers some great tips on how to prepare for hurricanes.

As more specific projections are released that pertain to Halifax Nova Scotia, OTC Insurance will update you on the latest news.
