Today is June first. We all know what that means in Texas. It’s the start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season. And we could have an active season according to Jeff Lindner with the Harris County Flood Control District.
“Maybe slightly above average with anywhere from 10-16 named storms,” Lindner told KTRH, adding that 5-9 of those could be hurricanes, with 1-4 of them being major storms.
That said a revised forecast from Colorado State University released yesterday is talking about a less active season, with only 14 storms and six hurricanes.
And, after Harvey hit us hard last year, Galveston County Judge Mark Henry tells KTRH recovery will be measured in years not months.
“I expect it will probably take ten years. We are still trying to get people back into their homes,” Henry stated.
In Harris County, Francisco Sanchez with the Harris County Office of Emergency Management echoed Judge Henry’s sentiments.
