CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS, USA, August 17, 2023/ EINPresswire.com / -- In a recent study by Colorado State University – they are predicting at least 18 named storms in 2023. Researchers expect nine of the storms to become hurricanes and four to reach major hurricane strength with sustained winds of 111 miles per hour or greater. Warmer than normal waters are contributing to the rise of hurricanes. According to a press release , the team predicts that 2023 hurricane activity will be about 130 percent of the average season, compared to 2022 when it was at 75 percent – this is a significant increase! Landfall probability included in release* The report also includes the probability of major hurricanes making landfall for the remainder of the season: - 48% for the entire U.S. coastline (full season average from 1880-2020 is 43%) - 25% for the U.S. East Coast including the Florida peninsula (full season average from 1880-2020 is 21%) - 31% for the Gulf Coast from the Florida panhandle westward to Brownsville (full season average from 1880-2020 is 27%) - 53% for tracking through the Caribbean (full season average from 1880-2020 is 47%) If there is any good news in this report, it is that hurricanes and tropical storms can be predicted.

Ultimate Protection Against High Winds and Wind-Borne Debris While boarding up doors and laying down sandbags can prevent damage from wind and airborne debris, hurricane-rated sliding door systems from Horton Automatics offer unmatched protection. Horton’s Miami-Dade County-approved sliding door systems can withstand pressures up to 85 pounds-per-square-foot. Heavy-duty rails with integrated steel tubing and corner blocks combine to create robust structural integrity that’s far superior to the through-bolt panels found in mass-produced sliding door systems. A three-point locking system ensures the doors are secure and anchored when closed. Panic hardware is an option for those buildings that require egress to be available at all times.
