What Hurricane Season Means for Our Worsening Flood Risks

By Partner ESI

In preparation for the start of the 2022 Atlantic Hurricane Season on June 1st, forecasts from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center were announced on May 24, 2022. NOAA is predicting a 65% probability of another above-average Atlantic hurricane season. This would be the seventh consecutive year with an above-average hurricane season. NOAA estimates that there will be 14 to 21 named storms this season, with 6 to 10 of these developing as hurricanes and 3 to 6 of the hurricanes developing into major hurricanes (category 3 to 5, with top winds of at least 111 miles per hour).

As we approach the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Sandy, unprecedented storms and hurricane seasons have continued to take place in recent years. In this article, Rachel Autry discusses factoring in climate change and designing projects to mitigate flood risks.
