What was expected to be a busy 2020 Atlantic hurricane season will soon come to a close, surpassing initial predictions for the number of named storms and hurricanes.
NOAA reported that “the 2020 season produced 30 named storms (top winds of 39 mph or greater), of which 13 became hurricanes (top winds of 74 mph or greater), including six major hurricanes (top winds of 111 mph or greater).” Twelve of these storms made landfall.
“This is the most storms on record, surpassing the 28 from 2005, and the second-highest number of hurricanes on record,” the agency said.
NOAA notes that this is the fifth consecutive year with above-normal Atlantic storm activity and that an average season “has 12 named storms, six hurricanes, and three major hurricanes.”
If you have experienced an insurance loss from a major storm, don’t be surprised if the insurance company’s first reaction is to claim that your damage is due to some pre-existing condition or assert that your claim is not covered under the terms of your policy or even cancel your policy based on recently-discovered “errors” in your application.
