Hurricane season in the Atlantic runs from June 1st to November 30th. However, storms outside of these dates are not unheard of. Activity ramps up in August and peaks in early September, then again in October.


Hurricanes form this season because of two factors: warm ocean waters (80 degrees or higher) and weak vertical winds (little change in wind direction and/or speed with height) are most common. This is also the season with the highest frequency of west-moving weather disturbances in the tropics that eventually develop into hurricanes.


The only difference between a hurricane, cyclone, and typhoon in your location. People in our area refer to violent thunderstorms as hurricanes, while people near the equator, Africa and Australia, refer to them as cyclones.

If your property experiences damages from a hurricane, SERVPRO of South Orlando is Here to Help. Call today at (407) 985-3200.
