In adjusting hurricane damage claims for homes within the 1968-1997 applicable residential code period, it is important that the inside of the walls be checked more carefully than
newer construction to ensure that moisture hasn’t seeped into the walls that will eventually result in mold and interior wall rot. If adjusters do not look for moisture build-up trapped inside the wall, then this damage could be missed, causing mold and rot to proliferate and resulting in bigger problems for homeowners in the future.

ATLANTIC BASIN SEASONAL HURRICANE FORECAST FOR 2016
Forecast Parameter and 1981-2010
Issue Date 1 June 2016 - Updated 7/1

  • Information obtained through July 2016 indicates that the 2016 Atlantic hurricane
    season will have activity near the median 1981-2010 season. There remains considerable
    uncertainty with this forecast which we outline in the following paragraphs.
    We estimate that 2016 will have an additional 5 hurricanes (median is 6.5), 11
    named storms (median is 12.0), 50 named storm days (median is 60.1), 20 hurricane days
    (median is 21.3), 2 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricane (median is 2.0) and 4 major
    hurricane days (median is 3.9). The probability of U.S. major hurricane landfall is
    estimated to be about 95 percent of the long-period average. We expect Atlantic basin
    Accumulated Cyclone Energy (ACE) and Net Tropical Cyclone (NTC) activity in 2016
    to be approximately 90 percent of their long-term averages for the remainder of the
    season.
