NOAA is hardly alone in predicting an active Atlantic hurricane season for 2013. The official start of the season was June first and all signs seem to indicate an uptick from normal seasonal averages which consist of 12 named storms 6 of which are categorized as hurricanes while 3 meet the major hurricane criteria. NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center claims that there is “a 70% likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms [winds of 39 mph or higher], of which 7-11 could become hurricanes [winds of 74 mph or higher], including 3-6 major hurricanes [category 3, 4 or 5’ winds of 111 mph or higher].
About Nauset Management
As a lifelong resident of the outer Cape I was the third generation to pick up the mantel in the family construction business. In my early twenties, I called the Cape my home on weekends as I spent several years working for a variety of off-Cape commercial construction companies. My site supervision resume includes two supermarkets, two HUD projects, a funeral home and a handful of steel industrial buildings as well as various restaurant and office remodels.
