With just 46 days until the Atlantic and Caribbean/ GOM hurricane season begins, now would be the time to start the process of getting your insurance in place. Most policies take 30 days to kick in. The water in the Gulf of Mexico and the ramp through the Florida Straits are all significantly warmer than normal. (See Atlantic ANOM below). This doesn’t mean that the hurricane season will begin earlier than normal or that it will be more intense than normal but the fuel is there if disturbances begin making earlier than normal calls in this region.

Just trying to think ahead….Thoughts?
