Are we expecting a storm-filled summer?

Apologies for the break in transmission - normal service will be resumed ASAP...especially as it appears the next few months look to be a particularly 'interesting' time weatherwise, not forgetting possible economic and financial 'crashes'...just be prepped like the Boy scouts!

Well, Hurricane season started on the Atlantic and Pacific coasts recently, and it does look like there are a number of gathering storms out there..keep an eye out on those..

In the meantime, here is an interesting article from regarding New York and the summer storms..

In brief...
The 2012 CoreLogic Storm-Surge Report released on June 7, 2012, puts New York, N.Y., at the top of their storm surge risk list with potential hurricane damage that exceeds $168 billion.
CoreLogic is a financial, property and consumer information, analytics and services company that works with government agencies, insurance companies, mortgage companies and others, according to the CoreLogic website.
The report looked at the potential damage to structures along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the U.S. due to storm surge from hurricanes.
Overall, the report estimates that more than 4 million U.S. homes are at risk of hurricane storm-surge flooding in 2012.
The estimates were made using CoreLogic's database of properties that are located within the perimeter of predetermined storm-surge polygon.

Keep looking in, I will be updating the survival and preparedness blog at regular intervals...for more on preparation and what to do in a variety of natural and man-made disasters go nof further than my preparedness site...

B safe B wise B prepared Survive!
