The Tropics Wake Up with Storms Possibly Heading Towards Florida
The tropics have come alive in the last few days with 3 disturbances swirling around. The main one to keep on eye on right now is Tropical Depression 13. Forecasted tracks could potentially put this storm making landfall in Florida by Monday. Of course, a lot could change in the next couple of days but this is certainly one to keep an eye out for. We will continue to monitor and keep you updated.
We are in the midst hurricane season, and that means the whole East Coast is on guard from now though much of October. With Tropical Storm Gonzalo swirling out in the Atlantic possibly threatening Florida in the next couple of weeks, now is a good time for a refresher on Disney and hurricanes.
Florida’s Hurricane Season spans a surprising 6 months. It begins at the start of June and runs through the end of November. Hurricane activity can happen at any time but storms tend to be more plentiful from around the middle to end of August through the end of October.
Many visitors worried about potential hurricanes should read this closely as it will hopefully help to put your mind at ease.
