  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) May 25, 2011 - As the June 1st start of hurricane season approaches, Florida Business Continuity Center (FBCC, http://www.fbccdr.com) announces availability of preparation facilities, providing alternate workforce recovery office space and related services for temporary staff relocation, enabling disaster recovery for organizations seeking business continuity in the event of damage to their primary workspace locations.

    According to the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University, publisher of annual hurricane activity forecast reports, researchers Philip J. Klotzbach and William M. Gray anticipate well above-average activity for the 2011 Atlantic hurricane season, indicating probability of the United States and Caribbean experiencing major hurricane landfall.

    Their 2011 report concludes that the upcoming Atlantic hurricane season will have significantly more activity than average. They estimate that this year will have about 9 hurricanes (average is 5.9), 16 named storms (average is 9.6), 80 named storm days (average is 49.1), 35 hurricane days (average is 24.5), 5 major (Category 3-4-5) hurricanes (average is 2.3) and 10 major hurricane days (average is 5.0).

    Klotzbach and Gray indicate probability for at least one major hurricane tracking into the Caribbean (10-20N, 60-88W) is 61% (average for last century is 42%). Probabilities for at least one major hurricane landfall on each of the following coastal areas:
    1) Entire U.S. coastline: 72% (average for last century is 52%)
    2) U.S. East Coast Including Peninsula Florida: 48% (average for last century is 31%)
    3) Gulf Coast from the Florida Panhandle westward to Brownsville: 47% (average for last century is 30%).
