With the 2015 Atlantic hurricane season set to start on June 1, Colorado State University researchers have forecast that the season will be less active than normal, with seven named storms, three hurricanes, and one major hurricane. In 2014, there were eight named storms, including six hurricanes and two major hurricanes, but only one made landfall in July – Hurricane Arthur, near Cape Lookout, North Carolina.

Despite predictions of a less-active hurricane season, forecasters are warning people not to let their guard down. They point out that 1992 was a year with not many storms – until Hurricane Andrew, a Category 5 storm, hit Florida causing $26 billion in damage.

National Hurricane Preparedness Week is May 24–30 this year. The Hartford has tools to share with your customers to help them prevail during the Hurricane Season:
