STATE COLLEGE, PA, May 15, 2006- The Hurricane Center, led by Chief Forecaster Joe Bastardi, today released its 2006 hurricane season forecast. An active hurricane season appears imminent, which could have major repercussions for the U.S. economy and the one in six Americans who live on the Eastern Seaboard or along the western Gulf of Mexico.

Areas of Very High risk:

  • Atlantic coasts of Upper South Carolina and North Carolina
  • Atlantic coasts of New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts

Areas of High risk:

  • Gulf coast of Texas
  • South Florida
  • Atlantic coast from South Carolina to Nova Scotia

Areas of Moderate risk:

  • Gulf coasts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama
  • Middle section of Florida
  • Atlantic coast near the border between Georgia and South Carolina

Area with Low risk:

  • Gulf coast of Florida Panhandle

Early in the season, June-July, the Texas Gulf coast is at greatest risk.

Mid-season, July-August, the south Atlantic coast is at greatest risk.

Late season, mid-August into early October, the north Atlantic coast is at greatest risk.

Added Ken Reeves, AccuWeather's Director of Forecast Operations, "This is not to say that hard-hit New Orleans has nothing to worry about. Because the city's defenses have been so compromised by Hurricane Katrina, even a glancing blow from a hurricane elsewhere could spell trouble for the city." Edit
