The first step in preparing for hurricane season is to understand the risk to your business. StormGeo's 2021 Atlantic Hurricane Outlook has been released and StormGeo is forecasting an above-normal season.
In this presentation, Alison Svrcek and Courtland Keith of StormGeo, Inc. will examine:
· the 2020 hurricane season in review,

· how many tropical systems to expect, and
· the regions at highest risk of being impacted.
Alison and Courtland will also discuss the best ways to prepare for the upcoming hurricane season, given the unique challenges of the COVID-19 global pandemic.
