Hurricane season starts in June and it has been almost nonexistent so far this year, like last. There are usually several hurricanes a year...maybe not Andrew or Katrina level. They don't have a big impact on the bottom line. Ernesto isn't expected to hit the US. You can track the hurricanes by going to the this website: http://www.nhc.noaa.gov/. It tells you the projected path and where it is expected to hit. But you didn't really want to know all of that, right? You just wanted to bash Allstate.
You missed the point. Hurricanes in the gulf don't usually start developing until September. Yeah, SURE, I agree, hurricanes develop elsewhere in June, but statistically, not until *September* do they start getting into the gulf...
So this doesn't bode well for what may prove to be a strange season.
Question for YOU -- are you aware that there have been many unusual climate changes world-wide this year?
Ice shelves dropping like dead flies? Record heat waves around the globe? You think we will have a nice, cool, uneventful hurricane season this fall?
