Hurricane Season Ending

(Tallahassee, FL/Nov. 320, 2021) — For the second consecutive year, the hurricane season has exhausted a list of storm names. But, November 30th marks the end of the 2021 season, and Florida has had brushes with only three named systems that were mostly rainmakers with tropical-storm force winds. Residents who were affected by the severe weather conditions should consider a Longview Roof Inspection and check the overall condition of their homes.

They may even need to hire roofing contractors to help them fix or replace their condo roofing systems. In addition, a Gutter System Repair service may be needed to fix gutter leaks or damages.

Elsa made landfall in Taylor County after dropping from hurricane to tropical-storm strength in early July. Tropical Storm Fred made landfall near Cape San Blas in the Panhandle with maximum sustained winds around 65 mph in mid-August. Tropical Storm Mindy found the Panhandle’s St. Vincent Island on Sept. 9.


All things considered, the state has been relatively unscathed in the highly active storm season, allowing emergency staff in Florida to continue addressing lingering impacts of past storms.

Division of Emergency Management Director Kevin Guthrie says Florida residents need to continue being prepared going forward, as the state won’t be as lucky every year.

Hurricane Season Ending

“It only takes one big storm to cause problems in the state of Florida. This is not going to be the norm. We are Florida. We get hit by hurricanes. It is going to happen.”

This year was the sixth consecutive above-average storm season and came after Florida suffered historic strikes from Irma in 2017 and Michael in 2018.

The Atlantic saw 21 named storms, the third-most active season on record. That includes seven hurricanes and four reaching Category 3 strength.
