Storms A-Brewin’

As our September issue went to press the Atlantic hurricane season was just starting off—with gusto. Three named storms had already crept up and dropped down, bringing high winds and heavy rain from Bimini to Bangor. And with the memory of last year’s devastating hurricane season still fresh in the minds of many boaters, NOAA’s 2013 hurricane prediction doesn’t bear good tidings: 13 to 20 named storms, seven to 11 hurricanes, with probably three to six major hurricanes—all categories showing increases over the same report in 2012. Be prepared, and check out the National Hurricane Center’s Web site (www.nhc.noaa.gov) for up-to-date information on what’s heading your way.  Hurricane
