Which U.S. states are most vulnerable to hurricanes?
Amid a deluge of hurricanes, the weather is not as bad as it used to be.
The forecast for the next week and a half is much less favorable for major storms.
It is still a good bet that the storm will be stronger than the last time we had hurricanes, but the chance of a major storm surge in the next month is about the same as it was in the early days of the century.
Hurricane warnings have become a common part of life for many Americans.
The best way to protect your home, office or business is to be prepared.
If you live in a state that has received a major hurricane warning, check your local storm center for updates on the storm, the storm surge, and other storm related threats.
If you live outside of a hurricane zone, prepare for extreme heat, rain and wind, especially in the summer months.
This means that you will need to be ready to evacuate if your home is damaged by a hurricane or you cannot get to your workplace, office, or business.
If your home or business has a basement, the safest way to stay warm is to put a jacket on.
In addition to staying safe, it is important to know how much damage you can expect to see from a hurricane.
The National Hurricane Center gives a range of possible hurricane damage in the U.N. estimates from $1 billion to $50 billion, with the higher the figure, the greater the damage.
