Sea Tow, the nation’s leading on-water marine assistance provider, urges boaters to prepare for the 2022 peak Atlantic hurricane season.
After an active 2021 Atlantic hurricane season, forecasters at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center, a division of the National Weather Service, predict above-average hurricane activity for 2022’s peak season. NOAA is forecasting a likely range of 14 to 21 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 6 to 10 have the potential to become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher). NOAA provides these ranges with a 70% confidence.
“Sea Tow is committed to the safety and wellbeing of its members and their vessels. As peak hurricane season is upon us, the potential impact of these storms is unpredictable,” said Sea Tow CEO, Joseph Frohnhoefer III. “We urge boaters to be prepared and know what steps need to be taken if a storm were to make landfall in their area, and that our team of knowledgeable and experienced captains are available to help.”
In an effort to prepare for peak hurricane season, the following is a list of boating tips to consider before, during, and after a hurricane.
