JUNE UPDATE pt. 1 It's That Time Again Empty JUNE UPDATE pt. 1 It's That Time Again

Post  shannon1 5/29/2011, 1:25 am

Yes it is that time of year June first is offically the start of hurricane season. Here is what NOAA is predicting for this year, and some links to their site.
The Atlantic basin is expected to see an above-normal hurricane season this year, according to the seasonal outlook issued by NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center – a division of the National Weather Service.
Across the entire Atlantic Basin for the six-month season, which begins June 1, NOAA is predicting the following ranges this year:

  • 12 to 18 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which:
  • 6 to 10 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including:
  • 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher)


Each of these ranges has a 70 percent likelihood, and indicate that activity will exceed the seasonal average of 11 named storms, six hurricanes and two major hurricanes.


I hope you have a disaster plan for you and your family already in place if not now is the time. Don't forget your gardens, we can't save our gardens from a hit but we can make sure they don't make matters worse.
Be sure any dead /dieing trees are removed. If a storm is approaching make sure to bring garden tools, lawn furinture and landscaping items inside so the high winds can't pick up and cause damage.
For more information here is a nice link I found http://www.examiner.com/gardening-in-norfolk/preparing-your-yard-for-hurricane-season .

Fun stuff tomorrow in pt.2

Thanks for the reminder. I must remember to take down my trellis and secure my outdoor furniture before I leave town for the summer. Last year I used automotive tiedowns and secured my furniture to a tree and to the deck rails. Also take in any cushions and leave the covers off. They will just fly away.

I would like to add that frequency of hurricanes in no way predicts frequency of landfalls. EACH hurricane bears watching as it nears the US coastline.

For example, a few years back with Charlie and Bonnie, we had lots of landfalls (especially you in Florida) but a relatively inactive hurricane season for the Atlantic Ocean. However, in 1992, there weren't a lot of storms that formed, but one did make landfall......Andrew.

Remain vigilant during the season and realize these are only predictions of activity. Like snow and tornado predictions, activity and damage are not directly proportional as common sense would suggest.

Happy Gardening!

Walshevak is removing her trellises and securing everything else because she is leaving the country for a couple of months that will include a portion of the hurricane season.

Now that the public service announcement is out of the way I have a more interesting June update for tomorrow. I had hoped to post it today but life got in the way, still before June first.

BBG is right, we got winds and rain from Katrina, not enough to get excited about though. Ike however gave us high winds, not really high winds, just enough to blow a few trees down on power lines because the ground was wet, we had no electricity and no rain, but thank goodness it was a bit more cloudy than usual. Ike is the reason my camping coffee pot is in the house at all times, you never know.

I'm really hoping we get some rain out of the hurricane season this year. Alex dumped on us really good last year. It was our first hurricane experience (DH and I) and we were already going out of town and planning to come back right when it was hitting. So we just put all the kids' toys and stuff that could fly around in the garage and extended our trip a few hours further north for the rest of the weekend at the grandparents'.

Thank you for the reminder! I have been through many a hurricane season in SC, five in HI, and this will be our second season in the coastal GA region, so we have a disaster plan in place (along with Ft Stewart's suggested/required action plans). Excellent suggestions for preparation!

You are welcome, I felt as the RH here in hurricaneville it was the thing to do. It would be nice to get some tropical rain but the ocean can keep the rest of it IMO. Cool
